All volunteers must register ahead of time; we do not currently accept any walk-ins. Volunteer shifts operate on a first come, first serve basis. If your desired volunteer shift is full, you can add yourself to the waitlist and a member of our team will contact you if a spot opens up.
If you are a first-time volunteer, you will be asked to create a login and password when you sign up for your first shift on our volunteer registration system. Once registered and logged in, select your shift, and a confirmation email will be sent back to you.
For returning volunteers, simply log in, select a shift, and you will receive a confirmation email.
