Information for Volunteers

Youth & Age Requirements

All youth groups under 18 must have one chaperone. If you are 16-18 years old and volunteering without an adult you must have your own transportation available.


Please wear appropriate attire to volunteer, which includes clothes that are comfortable for you.  We may be moving items, or walking around the building. If we will be working outside, we will let you know in advance so you can prepare for weather related items.

Parking & Entrance

If you are volunteering with a group, please encourage your staff to carpool. Please avoid parking in any accessible parking spots. Please park in front of any entrance doors – you will sign a sign for the staff door and main entry.
