What to wear
Wear comfortable but appropriate clothes. Jeans and a tee shirt are fine. We will not be providing volunteer shirts. If you are with an organization, feel free to wear a shirt repping your group! Wear comfortable shoes you don’t mind standing in all day. Please do not wear flip flops, high heels, etc.
What to bring
We recommend you bring snacks/lunch and a refillable water bottle. Also you may want to bring a sweater in case it gets cold. Please note that when you check in, we will ask to hold on to a photo ID. This is to make sure that volunteers do not ‘disappear’ from their spots without first checking out. If you do not have a state issued ID, A school ID is fine. You can also bring lunch/snacks. We will have waters and some snacks like chips, but you may want to bring your own as well. There will also be food trucks, so you can purchase lunch if you bring cash.
The most important thing is that we require volunteers to stay for the duration of the shift. If volunteers arrive late and/or leave early, it disrupts the flow of the event and can cause many problems for event attendees and event organizers.
