All volunteers must complete a waiver prior to volunteering with us. The waiver can be downloaded here for adults and here for minors. Please download, print and fill out the form, then bring it with you to the event. Blank waiver forms will also be available at each volunteer event.

Advance registration for each volunteer event is requested, but not required. This will help us get a head count for how much food and tools we need to have on hand.

    Please choose which upcoming dates you would like to join us.
