Volunteer duties will be scheduled in shifts so you’ll still have a chance to learn in sessions, too. To sign up for a shift, please contact Deanna Di Lello at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. Volunteers are encouraged to attend a Volunteer Orientation Session: Monday May 15th, 7:00pm – 8:30pm.
