Students who would like to volunteer can fill out an application at the following link: https://vtfoodbank.volunteerhub.com/. If students could please indicate on the application that they are interested in volunteering as part of Spaulding’s volunteer initiative, that would be great.  Students 16 and above do not need to volunteer with an adult chaperone; students who are 14 and 15 do need to be accompanied by an adult chaperone (5 students per 1 chaperone). If students would like to sign up for a Sort-a-Thon event, they should fill out the application at least a week before the event so I have time to review the application and collect the permission slip.
