Completed Forms should be submitted via fax to 912-651-7724 or by email to email@example.com Once registered, volunteers should report to one of the designated centers listed below to be assigned a team, given a safety briefing, and dispatched to a service site.
We will also have walk-in registration at both of our Volunteer Centers listed below. Walk-in registration will begin at 7AM on Saturday 9/16 morning and last approximately 3-4 hours. We encourage volunteers to arrive early so we can put them into teams and dispatch them to locations as quickly as possible.

We will provide basic personal protective equipment to all volunteers (gloves, protective eyewear, masks).
