Additional Details about Volunteering:

  • Parking – We encourage our volunteers to carpool but free parking is available directly in front of the facility located at 3240 Clifton Springs Road, Decatur, GA 30034.
  • What to wear – We require closed toe shoes and recommend that volunteers wear comfortable clothes that they don’t mind getting dirty. The sort room is climate controlled, but we recommend wearing layers. See chart above for current COVID mask guidelines.
  • We also provide water, coffee and tea for our volunteers, but you are welcome to bring snacks.

 

Orientation is conducted for all new volunteers at the beginning of the session, so punctuality is important. Once you sign up for a volunteer session, you are confirmed to attend. If you need to cancel your session after signing up, we request that you cancel as soon as possible so others may have the opportunity to join in your place.
