Dress for the Occasion: We are a warehouse environment that is not climate controlled. Please dress accordingly. T-shirts and shorts are acceptable as long as the shorts are appropriate for a working environment. Volunteers must wear sneakers or tennis shoes for safety.

Cell Phone Safety: Please keep cell phones in pockets. With warehouse equipment and so many moving pieces, we would prefer if cell phones were kept in pockets and not used while volunteering. You may use your phone in designated break areas.

Create a Plan: Can we expect you to serve The Mustard Seed once a week? Once a month? Please plan your schedule in advance.

Food and Water: We do not have food vending machines on property. If you would like to bring a lunch, please label it with your name and keep it in the refrigerator in our kitchen. Food may be eaten in the volunteer break room. While we do have a drink vending machine and water cooler, we encourage volunteers to bring their own reusable water bottle. Volunteers may bring water with them during their shift.
