Volunteer for Operation Raise a Flag

Thank you for your interest in planting flags as part of Operation Raise a Flag on Wednesday, November 10. Throughout the day, over 30,000 flags will be planted on the Sunnybrook’s grounds creating a patriotic sea of red and white. Our veterans will awaken on Remembrance Day knowing that you care about their great sacrifice.

Volunteers are invited to plant flags in 30 to 60 minute time slots from 4:00pm to 7:00pm on Wednesday, November 10. You will be able to select your desired time below.

Safety Protocols

We are pleased to welcome volunteers from the community back to plant flags this year in a limited capacity. A portion of flags will be planted earlier in the day by Sunnybrook staff. Unlike previous years, there will be no formal program and all volunteers will check in and pick up their flags outside. All volunteers will be required to wear masks and maintain safe social distancing. Only children twelve years and older will be permitted to plant flags. All volunteers are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or show proof of a negative PCR test within 48 hours. A pre-screening health questionnaire will be sent via email 48 hours prior to the event and will need to be completed prior to planting flags.

We welcome youth groups like Scouts, Guides and Cadets to plant flags. If you are organizing a youth group as volunteers, please keep this in mind as you may need to enlist the support of additional adult volunteers.

To volunteer, please complete the form below. After signing up you will receive your volunteer information package before November 5.
