DAILY VOLUNTEERING AT THE FOB
Join Operation Gratitude at our headquarters, aka “The FOB” starting Monday, July 12th as we open our doors to volunteering. The safety of our volunteers and recipients is our top priority.
Due to COVID-19, each shift will be limited to 20 volunteers. PRE-registration is REQUIRED to participate – please be mindful and register for no more than 2 shifts per week to ensure others have the opportunity to volunteer. To ensure the comfort and safety of all volunteers, we will continue to wear face coverings and maintain adequate distance between individuals whenever possible.
Volunteers ages 13 years and older are welcome to serve at The FOB. Youth who are 13-17 years of age must have a responsible adult with them on the premises at all times, with access to transportation. Due to insurance, liability, and safety concerns, we must strictly adhere to these rules – there are no exceptions. Once you register, you will receive an email with important details for your volunteer shift. We ask that you arrive no earlier than 15 minutes before your shift to allow us time to set up, clean/sanitize the area, and to check volunteers in at the front doors of our facility.
Please do not register if you are waiting for results from a COVID-19 test or in the past 14 days you have experienced:
● Temperature of over 100.4
● Any COVID-19 symptoms including but not limited to fever, cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, muscle or body aches, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat and/or congestion
● Close contact with a person with COVID-19
● If experiencing even minor symptoms associated with COVID-19, volunteers are encouraged to stay home or they will be sent home.
IMPORTANT NOTE: At this time, we are not holding our large scale monthly assembly days at the FOB, however we are still accepting small groups of volunteers.
