All volunteers will be given a volunteer t-shirt to wear during their volunteer shift and water and snacks will be available as well. Jackets/layers should be worn below the volunteer t-shirt; closed-toed shoes, hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen are also recommended.

Lunches will be available before or after your shift, depending on the time of day. Volunteers for AM shifts should plan to arrive at least 10 minutes early to check-in; volunteers for PM shifts should plan to arrive at least 30 minutes early to allow time for lunch if a lunch is desired.

A signed waiver will be required of all volunteers (available electronically during the sign-up process). The minimum age to volunteer is 14 (parent/guardian authorization signature on a paper waiver form will be required for those under 18).
