  • Please know that we will be as prompt as possible when dropping the red kettles off and picking them up each day.
  • You may be relieving another volunteer at this location when you arrive.
  • Due to the number of locations, if we are not at your site to meet you at the beginning of your shift, please feel free to call us.  However, more than likely, we are on our way to you.
  • If someone does not relieve you or pick up your kettle at the end of your shift, please wait 15 minutes. Some stores allow us to leave the kettle at the customer service desk.
