Best Practices for Volunteers
Please tie back shoulder-length hair or longer, refrain from open-toed shoes, sleeveless shirts and shorts. If you're feeling sick, please stay home and let us know! In accordance with Health Department rules, there can be no eating or drinking behind the food service line.
Enter through the East door under the portico off Detroit Avenue. Press the button on the intercom and the church will let you in. Aprons and gloves are provided.
