White Rock-based Sources Community Resource Centres is looking for volunteers to help with the agency's shop-by-phone program.

Volunteers call clients to take their grocery orders and shop on their behalf.

The job requires two to four hours a week.

Prospective volunteers are asked to call the Sources volunteer centre at 604-542-4357.

The 140 staff and 150 volunteers at the agency donated almost 22,000 hours of their time last year to 14 programs in nine different locations.

The Sources help line and volunteer services respond to over 5,700 requests for assistance a year.

Last year, the agency provided direct service to over 12,300 individuals, 90 per cent of whom live in Surrey.

That represents approximately three out of every 100 residents of all ages in Surrey and six out of every 100 in White Rock.

Sources operates a food bank, treatment facilities, group homes, and family and individual counseling services.
