Can I bring my children?

Often parents want to bring their children to demonstrate the importance of volunteering. The warehouse is a very busy place and can be unsafe if your children are not constantly supervised which is hard to do if you’ve signed up for a specific volunteer tasks.

Please keep in mind:

  • Our warehouse is always bustling with activity and things can get very hectic
  • Gift wrapping shifts are 4 hours long and lots of work needs to be done during that time
  • If your child is under the age of 14, we require you to bring another responsible adult who can take charge while you work
  • When registering to volunteer as a family, register ONLY the adults
