Visitors/Friends Volunteering With Volunteer
Author Last Post
Happy Friday! 

I'm looking for any policies on visitors and bringing children and/or grandchildren to volunteer. 

Our current policy for visitors states: If they are interested in helping you out that day, please have them speak with the VC prior to that day. 

Our current policy states: there may be times when an emergency arises and your child or grandchild may need to be with you while you volunteer. Please inform the VC to determine if it's better to stay home with them or if we can keep them occupied with small tasks in the Food Shelf. 

I'm also wondering if you have an age of when parental consent is needed for the child to volunteer? In particular when the grandparent brings the grandchild in to volunteer.

Thank you all!
