Thank you so much for offering to be a part of the CCS team for the day!
If this is your first time – we look forward to meeting you! And welcome back to all of our regulars!
What can you expect? When you volunteer with us, you can plan to spend your day connecting with our clients and experiencing some unforgettable, goose-bumpy moments. Here are a few tips to make the most of your day with us:
- Please arrive at your chosen location in time to get a tour and overview of the operations (8:15 for volunteers and 8:45 for hairdressers)
- Dress comfortably; you will be outside and possibly on your feet during the day. Each volunteer has the option of buying a Cloud Covered Streets volunteer shirt for $20. Alternatively, we will have a safety vest to borrow, so clients using the trailer know who they can go to for assistance.
- Our trailer is set up for use from 8:30 AM until 1 PM (depending on volume). During that time we’ll provide showers, laundry, haircuts, new clothes, food and compassion to our neighbors currently experiencing homelessness.
- Volunteer jobs include: client sign-in, oversee waiting areas, laundry room, pass out supplies/toiletries/snacks, attempting to locate potential clients in the nearby neighborhoods, and most importantly, taking the time to CONNECT with everyone there. Greet our neighbors with a handshake or a fist bump, learn their name, their story, how their day went, what sports or hobbies they are into, what job skills and aspirations they have. Make them feel like they are the center of someone’s universe, like they matter, like they are not forgotten and that they do have the ability to turn their lives around.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask away. You will receive another email from us three days before your volunteer date.
We appreciate you! and could not do this without you!!
