All Hands Are Helping Hands
Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Knights Table!
Volunteers are highly valued at Knights Table. We recognize that volunteers play a vital role not only in society but also with Knights Table by helping to serve and walk with those living with poverty in Peel; volunteers partner with us to work for peace, dignity and justice.

Volunteers function as highly visible role models within our communities and they increase the capacity of Knights Table. Each year we rely on more than 3,200 volunteers to be a part of our team to assist with programs, meals, food bank, tutoring, after-school clubs, building maintenance, day camps, and a wide variety of seasonal and special events.

Volunteers make an incredible difference in our ability to provide effective programs to the community. We are most grateful to each individual and group who gives his or her time and talents to make a difference to Knights Table community.
