Registration will involve an electronic check-in process that will require volunteers to have their own cell phone to input data to a web-based platform. No personal data will be stored on anyone's phone, but on the website itself.  Portable chargers will be available for volunteers. Clients will be instructed to keep their windows/doors closed at all times to ensure social distancing. 

 

Traffic direction will involve directing incoming cars to specified check points in the lot. We will have volunteers stationed at both the beginning and end of the registration check point, with one group allowing cars into the registration area, and another group directing cars from the registration point to the loading area.

 

Vehicle loading will involve loading boxes of food into the trunks of client's vehicles. Each box will weigh 20 pounds or more. During this process, the clients will remain in their vehicles with their windows up. In the month of July, volunteers will be assisting with this duty alongside the National Guard.  

 

We are unable to guarantee specific volunteer duties for the shift.

 

All interested volunteers should note the following:

  • Volunteers must be 18 or older in order to participate. 
  • Volunteers will need to arrive by 12:30 pm in order to enter the lot, park, and report to the volunteer check-in station. If traffic is backed up, you can let the closest police officer know that you are volunteering and they will be able to assist you to the parking area. 
  • Volunteers will have their temperature taken upon arrival. 
  • Closed-toe/Closed-heel footwear is required. 
  • Masks will be distributed to all volunteers, and are required to be worn. Volunteers that do not wear their masks will be asked to leave. 
  • Volunteers will be on their feet and outdoors for the duration of the shift and will need to plan/dress accordingly.
  • Social distancing practices will be enforced, and volunteers will be required to maintain at least six feet of distance between themselves and other individuals at all times.
  • Volunteers will be encouraged to take breaks as needed.
  • We recommend bringing snacks and a water bottle to keep near your station or in your vehicle so that you have them on hand if needed.

We will plan to follow up with all volunteers prior to the day of the shift to confirm the details above and to answer any questions that come up.
