  • Volunteers must be at least 8 years old to volunteer in the warehouse with adult supervision.
  • Youth ages 8-15 may volunteer with adult supervision with a ratio of 1 adult to every 5 youth who are 15 years old and under. Youth must be accompanied by an adult at all times when in the warehouse.
  • All volunteers over the age of 16 years old must complete an Individual Volunteer Form.
  • If you are 16-18 years old and volunteering without an adult you must have your own transportation available.
