  • We ask that you only wear your volunteer shirt during your scheduled shift(s) and bring a change of clothes for after. Thank you!
  • You are welcome to bring a snack and non-alcoholic drinks to your shift!
  • Dress comfortably/for the weather during your shift. Comfortable shoes will make all the difference!
