Info For Volunteers
While we rely heavy on volunteers on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, it should also be noted that we have an enormous amount of individuals who do volunteer (there ends up being a lot of “standing around” time when there are this many people involved). We know it isn’t the most efficient way to run things but we aren’t about to turn anyone away who wants to give of their time and talents to volunteer that day.
We do ask that volunteers be at least 16 years of age.
Some volunteers will arrive as early as 7:30 a.m. on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and nearly all are done by 4 p.m. Most come and work a few hours during the day at times that work for them and a few hearty and select few will be there during the entire day. There are no hard and fast rules for our volunteers. You can come and go as you like and help fill the boxes.
