Thanks for your interest in volunteering!
A nonrefundable $1.50 donation is required for each volunteer signup.
If you are unable to donate, you can text us on the DAY OF to inquire weather we need help or not and when. Text 815 310 0903.
There are 2 main reasons for this.
1 - For the last 2 years, approximately 50% of our volunteer sign ups are no call/no shows. By requiring a $1.50 donation in order to sign up, this will hopefully help stop this problem. We have 5 slots for a reason - we need 5 people! When 2 or 3 don't show up it hurts. It is also unfair to those in our community needing to complete hours for court or class that actually want to show up!
2 - It has become increasingly difficult for us to operate. This donation will help cover costs like the insurance that covers our volunteers, your use of paper products while volunteering such as gloves, paper towels etc, the costs of laundering aprons, chef coats and rags, and other expenses.
For those that have an large number of hours to complete (50 or more) we may waive this fee after a couple of shifts. Please discuss this when you are in. If you have less than 50 hours, we are unable to waive this donations.
Tasks you may be asked to perform: Cleaning (wiping tables, dishes, sweeping, mopping, taking our garbage) Kitchen Prep (handling, slicing and preparing raw meat and veggies) and customer service (bussing tables, refilling drinks, assisting, talking and welcoming guests. If you are unable to perform any of these tasks, please sign up for another shift. Thank you!
