The Mission to Seafarers Southern Ontario is looking for volunteers to support the seafarers when they arrive in our ports here in Oshawa.  Volunteers are needed to support seafarers in our centre by ensuring that we are open, coffee and snacks are available, assist seafarers in their needs and be a friendly face to those that are far from home.  We are also looking for volunteers to visit the ships to connect with the seafarers there and ensure that their welfare and needs are looked after.
