We will provide you with a volunteer t-shirt, but we suggest you dress weather appropriate and wear comfortable shoes.

You can leave your belongings at the Volunteer Command Center or take them with you to your site. Amp the Cause is not responsible for any lost or stolen items.

That’s great! Volunteering with a buddy always makes an event more fun. Let us know who your friend is and we’ll do our best to make sure you get to work together.

7. Can I bring someone with me to help out on the day of the event?

No. While we do appreciate any and all help, we do ask that volunteers sign-up ahead of time. This gives us the opportunity to make sure all volunteers receive a meal and t-shirt, and allows for us to make sure the entire event is as well organized and efficient as possible.

A boxed meal will be provided for all volunteers. You can pick up your meal before or after your shift at the Volunteer Command Center. Please, no eating while on site in your position.

If you need to use the restroom, please make sure there is another volunteer, section lead or Amp the Cause staff member there to cover your position.
