BOARD POSITIONS

Positions: Advisory Board Members (volunteers)
Type: advisory board (unpaid)
Organization: Stone Soup Network
Location: Toronto, Ottawa or anywhere in Ontario

The Stone Soup Network is seeking volunteer Advisory Board Members, from diverse backgrounds and rich personal experiences to devote roughly 10 hours per month to the Stone Soup Network and its various projects.

What is the Stone Soup Network?

The Stone Soup Network is focused on creating long-term impact by helping to build healthier, more socially cohesive communities. In the past year Stone Soup Network provided more than 1000 gifts of much needed products and services to families and individuals in need thanks to the local businesses who donated goods and services such as pharmacy gift cards for isolated seniors, and new books for homebound, eager young readers. Our online database keeps a list of donated products (movie tickets, clothes, store gift cards, or other merchandise) and services (legal, dental, personal, financial) and makes them available to the “social connectors” of the community, people like social workers or religious leaders. They help make the connection between the donations and the people who need them most.

The Stone Soup Network garners support from local businesses who operate in their local communities. It’s easy for them to bring their products to their consumers because their consumers are nearby. By cutting down on these miles, people are reducing the environmental impact of transportation. 
"I had the opportunity to try products that I have never tried before, such as organic food" 
"Getting vouchers has been of great help for my family, because I had a chance to get organic products, and eat healthier”
