Register as a Volunteer
Volunteering is an excellent way to give back to the community, use your current skills, learn some new ones and meet fantastic people. We welcome all reliable volunteers.

Steps to Volunteering as an Individual
Step 1: If you’re a new volunteer, select New Volunteer Registration on the Volunteer Calendar. Children 8 -15 yrs. must be registered individually.
Step 2: Check the calendar for available dates and positions.
Step 3: Select SIGN UP to schedule yourself. Please note that children and their accompanying adult(s) must be signed up for the shift.
Step 4: Review and sign the Volunteer Waiver and Health and Safety forms as prompted.
- Children 8 – 15 yrs. old can volunteer for our Wednesday evening youth/family shifts if accompanied by an adult who is also registered for the shift (minimum 1 adult:5 youth). Special event shifts including food drives and parades, are also open to supervised youth 15 and under.
- Students requiring volunteer hours as part of their school curriculum may sign up for shifts appropriate to their age group. A summary of hours served can be printed from the volunteer registration system, or documents can be signed on completion of all shift(s). Please note that we do not accept court-ordered volunteers and do not provide letters confirming hours served for mandated/court-ordered volunteer service. NO EXCEPTIONS.
- All volunteers must wear close-toed, sturdy shoes. Slippers and sandals will not be allowed.
- We rely on our volunteers to work their scheduled shifts. Cancellations should be made on the website or by phone at least 24 hrs. in advance.
