Play it Forward Pittsburgh

2021 Volunteer SignUp

Thank you for volunteering! Volunteers are the biggest reason Play it Forward Pittsburgh is so successful.  Anyone is welcome to volunteer, adults and kids!  We love Girl Scout and Cub Scout groups, Moms Clubs, friends and families. 

This year there will be a combied Box Pickup (Friday) and public shopping day (Saturday) for Play it Forward.  Like last year, recipients will will sign up for the distribution in advance.  We will sort toys as usual Monday-Friday and volunteers will also package boxes for recipients that chose that option on Thursday and Friday for distribution Friday afternoon. We will have a limited but traditional shopping day on Saturday in addition to the box pickup.  

Our space this year is back to our usual space on the 1st floor of the David L. Lawrence Convention Center. We have over 40,000 square feet so there's plenty of room to spread out! We will maintain many of the safety features we implement last year, so please read below for full details.  

Max number per shift

  • There will be no more than 50 volunteers in the space per 2-hour shift.   Volunteers will work in zones and be asked to stay in their zone while working to promote social distancing.  

Mask policy

  • Play it Forward will enforce a strict face covering policy for all volunteers and guests.  Everyone entering the space will need to wear a face covering over their nose and mouth at all times.  No food or drink will be allowed in the space this year.

Social Distancing

  • We will ask volunteers to maintain proper social distancing as defined by the CDC whenever possible. Even when distanced, masks will need to be worn.

Gloves, cleaning supplies

  • Volunteers and guests are encouraged to bring their own gloves should they choose to wear them. A limited supply will be available at the space. Cleaning supplies and hand sanitizer will be provided.
  • The toys will be sprayed with an electrostatic sprayer as they are sorted and organized to add additional disinfectant. 

Children

  • This year, due to COVID safeguards, we are asking that all children be supervised by an adult.  If your child’s group is volunteering, we ask that adults stay and assist with volunteering. All groups or parents with younger children (12 and under) must remain in the same zone during their shift.  We know kids love to run around, but we need to continue to be mindful of limiting that movement this year.

We only have less than a week, so it's important to fill as many volunteer slots as we can. The slots are set in 2 hour increments, but feel free to come early and stay late for your shift!

ALL VOLUNTEER HOURS SHOULD ENTER THROUGH THE WEST HALL OF THE DAVID L. LAWRENCE CONVENTION CENTER
