Please note: Lorraine’s will attempt to schedule you according to your requirements and availability, and according to the facilities’ needs. Requests to volunteer in the very short term may not always be possible, as the facility must plan ahead and schedule teams regularly. If you would like to be added to our “reinforcements” list, please indicate such under the type of volunteering you are interested in.
