Fortitude Community Outreach
These instructions have changed for Fall 2020...please read carefully!
Please sign up EVERY individual planning to volunteer. Please only sign up/bring children Jr. High age and above.
Please follow these instructions for meeting with the team:
Meet at Legion Park in Kankakee at 6:30pm. We will arrive with our outreach trailer around 6:30 so please wait for us to arrive. Masks are required. We have a limited supply that we prefer to give to our guests. We have gloves available if you desire them. Please maintain good social distance with volunteers and guests.
We do not accept any donations in the field. If you would like to bring any donations, please deliver to Bargains & Treasures (396 N. Kennedy Dr.) Tues-Fri 11-6 (closed Sundays and Mondays) or Saturday 10-1.
We also do not accept any mandated volunteers. If you are looking to fill volunteer hours for school, organizations, or court, please consider other organizations such as the Salvation Army. We do not have the capacity to complete/sign forms and because we work with such a vulnerable population, it is vital we only have volunteers 100% committed to serving them.
Although we have not experienced any safety concerns, outreach does come with some potential risk. Fortitude teams take every precatution to maintain safety but volunteers should maintain awareness, secure all personal items, and make sure to remove oneself and/or ask for help any time a sense of discomfort around someone is experienced. By signing up, you are affirming that you have read this disclaimer and understand the risks and safety measures to be followed.
