Volunteer With Us

Already volunteered with us? Make sure to log your hours, and then tell us how we did by filling out our volunteer satisfaction survey!

  • All volunteers will have their temperatures taken and will be required to fill out a waiver verifying their health. 

    • Per CDC guidelines, all volunteers with a temperature above 100.4F will be sent home. 

  • If you are sick, or in contact with someone who’s sick, stay home. Individuals who arrive on site with symptoms will be asked to go home. 

  • Masks are required and must be worn at all times. 

    • Frozen Assets volunteers will be given a face shield and gloves for their shift as well.​
