Please dress comfortably, but conservatively. No short shorts, tank tops or flip flops! Jeans, t-shirts and tennis shoes are appropriate for most volunteer activities. All shoes must have closed-in toes and heels. Red Volunteer Shirts should be worn at all times if possible.
If you are scheduled to volunteer at any TCWCT food distribution event, food safety disposable gloves must be worn at all times during food distribution.
All volunteers must be in high school or older. Children who are younger than high-school-age are not allowed to volunteer or to accompany volunteers – even if they are with a parent. Please make other arrangements for younger children.Be faithful in fulfilling your commitment. If you must cancel, please let us know as early as possible. Volunteers should arrive 5 minutes prior to their scheduled shift.
Since all projects are scheduled for a specific number of volunteers, we must know prior to your arrival if the number of volunteers changes. If you bring extra volunteers, we will not have staff available to provide additional, unscheduled projects.
Notify Volunteer Services in advance of any press releases, anticipated cameras or possible media coverage. This will allow us to make preparations for clients who do not wish to be photographed.
Please sign-in at each event when you arrive and be sure to sign-out when you leave.
Unless arrangements were made when scheduling your project, please do not bring food or snacks for our clients. We do, however, always appreciate your non-perishable food donations.
All tobacco products – including smoked and smokeless tobacco and electronic cigarettes – are banned from all TCWCT locations and while representing our mission.
Each volunteer is a vital partner! We want to answer your questions. Please be sure to ask.
Thank you for choosing to volunteer at TCWCT!
