COVID-19 Update: We love our volunteers and could not do what we do without you. Due to COVID-19, our 2020-2021 season will be conducted via motel stays, just as we did at the end of the last season.
While the role of volunteers is a bit more limited than in regular seasons,, there are still ways you can volunteer!
In the Motel
We will need folks who are comfortable doing so, to assist in the “command center” at the motel. Duties include delivering meals, answering the room phone as guests have needs/questions and just generally being a helpful resource. Note: we will be enforcing a strict mask policy for guests, staff and volunteers but we have no control over non-Launch Pad guests, so there is some elevated risk. Please take these risks into account.
We provide lunch and dinner every day. Volunteers can make a meal for 20 and drop off at lobby with no physical interaction with guests and staff. We prefer meals packaged ready to be distributed individually, but we can also take meals that need to be portioned out.
Masks, toiletry items such as soap and shampoo, men and women’s underwear in all adult sizes are our main needs at the moment.
If you are already in our system, you can log into the volunteer portal here to look at opportunities and your schedule.
If you have not volunteered before, you can fill out an application here as a way to indicate interest. First time volunteers (other than those simply dropping off food) will need to participate in a training. We do not yet have any trainings set, but are unlikely to hold them in a group setting. We will let you know when we have training opportunities.
Please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions or if you would just prefer to provide your information that way for us to get you set up in the Volgistics volunteer management app.
