COVID-19 update: At this time we do not recommend that seniors (65+) or anyone with a chronic health condition volunteer. If you are sick please cancel your shift – any volunteer that is showing signs of illness will be asked to leave and return when well.  We are screening volunteers (temperature check, etc.) in accordance with County guidelines.
