2020 Out of the Cold Homeless Shelter at Beth Sholom - Volunteer Sign-up Form
PLEASE READ BEFORE COMPLETING THE FOLLOWING FORM:

When you fill in the form below you are indicating your preferences for the weeks you would like to volunteer. This does NOT mean you will automatically be volunteering on those weeks. You will be receiving confirmation from our Volunteer Co-ordinator for the dates and shifts you are scheduled for.

As the program offers new services to our guests, we will be rotating people through different positions throughout the season and appreciate your commitment to participating in various roles. As such, some volunteers may be asked to work in the clothing room, sign in tables, serve, do dishes, etc.

The number of volunteers has increased dramatically over the years and we are trying to accommodate everyone. This could mean that you will only receive 2 or 3 shifts this season. In addition we will be providing all volunteers with a 12 week schedule of their shifts. Please do not show up on evenings that you are not scheduled to work as you will be turned away in order to maintain fire code regulations and fairness to all the volunteers. Please advise us ASAP at volunteer.ootcbsbt@gmail.com if you cannot attend a shift you are scheduled for. Do NOT have someone show up in your place. We will contact you in late December regarding the first date in January. We thank you for your understanding and continued support of our Shelter.

Please note that by signing up you are agreeing to work on those days if selected and therefore please note that the winter holidays, march break, and the week of family day overlap with our program.

Once you submit your form, you will receive a copy of your completed form as confirmation, approximately one hour after it was sent. If you do not receive a copy of the completed form please check your spam folder before contacting us at volunteer.ootcbsbt@gmail.com.

Please note that EACH person volunteering is required to complete this form and if needed, families may use the same email address for each family member.
