Volunteer Guidelines

Volunteer Guidelines

ARRIVAL: Arrive by 8:30 am. Volunteer check-in is at the front desk. A board member will meet new volunteers and provide a brief orientation. Volunteers finish just after 11:00 am.

PARKING: Leave the front row of parking open for our recipients. 

FACE MASK: Every volunteer must bring and wear a face mask at all times. 

DRESS APPROPRIATELY: WFP volunteers spend a good amount of the time on their feet and outdoors. Please check the weather, dress appropriately for outdoor conditions, and wear comfortable shoes.

FORMS: Bring forms needing signatures for community service credit when you come to volunteer.

FRIENDS AND FAMILY: New volunteers are always welcome! Must be in 9th Grade or older.

VALUABLES: Please leave all valuables at home or locked in your vehicle. We do not have a place to secure personal items. 

DISCRETION: The confidentiality of our recipients is of the utmost importance. Thank you for respecting their privacy at all times.

FINALLY: Please stay home and take care of yourself if you are not feeling well. We will be extra excited to see you at future volunteering opportunities. 

Thank you very much for volunteering with the Wachusett Food Pantry!
