Frequently Asked Questions about Volunteering

DO YOU CANCEL EVENTS BECAUSE OF THE RAIN?

Most of our events happen rain or shine. If the people we are serving are outside in the rain, so will we. Be sure to dress accordingly. If an event 100% cannot happen because of the rain, you will be notified. But it is safe to assume volunteering will happen rain or shine.

HOW OLD DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO VOLUNTEER?

While we do have opportunities for people of all ages, some volunteer opportunities do have age restrictions. Please read the relevant service area’s page for details on age restrictions.

HOW DO I SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER?

CAN I GET A LETTER STATING HOW MANY HOURS I VOLUNTEERED?
