Responding to the Coronavirus: Volunteer Protocol

UPDATED ON June 21, 2021:

Dear Community,

At this time, we are looking for volunteers on every shift throughout the week. All of our shifts are listed online where you can view and SIGN UP to volunteer (here). If you are not feeling well or have any concerns about volunteering PLEASE DO NOT VOLUNTEER NOW.

Our volunteer needs are fluid and updated in real-time, so if you don’t see what you’re looking for, please check back later.

As more information is provided and guidelines are put into place by the state and local governments, we are making adjustments to our operations. If you are volunteering with us, you will notice the following changes.

In addition to the protocols described, we have implemented the following additional protocols: 

  • If you answer “yes” to any of these questions you should not enter God’s Love.
    • Have you or any members of your household, exhibited any of the following symptoms in the past 14 days?
      • Fever or chills
      • Cough
      • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
      • Fatigue
      • Muscle or body aches
      • Headache
      • New loss of taste or smell
      • Sore throat
      • Congestion or runny nose
      • Nausea or vomiting
      • Diarrhea
  • Have you or any members of your household received a COVID-positive test in the past 14 days

When volunteering:

  • All volunteers  must sanitize your hands after being signed in for your shift and will be required to wash your hands before and after all volunteer shifts.
  • Volunteers are asked to check in a maximum of 15 minutes before their scheduled shifts. If you arrive more than 30 minutes early, you may be asked to wait to enter the building.
  • During this time, we ask that volunteers remain in the building for a maximum of 15 minutes past the end of their shift.
  • All volunteers MUST wear masks at all times. If you have your own mask and want to wear it while working at God’s Love, you may do so assuming it is clean, we can provide you with a mask.

Please know how grateful we are for your ongoing and caring commitment to our clients and mission. If you have any questions or concerns, please email the Volunteer Department at volunteer@glwd.org.

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.
