The Taste of Edmonton starts later this week and there’s still a need for volunteers to count people entering and exiting.
An urgent call for gate counter volunteers went out Monday from the Christmas Bureau of Edmonton, which has partnered with Taste of Edmonton to help organize volunteers and donations.
People are needed to count the number of guests entering and leaving the Taste of Edmonton site. Volunteers will be supplied with a counter clicker.
Volunteers work in pairs and shifts are four to five hours long. The festival runs Thursday, July 22 to Sunday, Aug. 1 in Churchill Square.
“If you are someone (who) likes meetings and talking with people, can stand for a four hour shift, and don’t mind monitoring a crowd and reporting any incidents to security, this volunteer activity is for you,” explained the Christmas Bureau.
Volunteers receive a food ticket for each hour worked. Parking is provided.
All Alberta Health COVID-19 safety protocols are in effect up to and including masking, sanitizing, two-metre distancing, and reduced numbers of attendees.
Volunteers will be required to complete a health questionnaire before each shift.
Taste of Edmonton is run by Events Edmonton.
