For these groups we can accommodate 8-10 volunteers. For more information on scheduling a large group, please contact our Volunteer and Development Coordinator at gro.e1534851321civre1534851321scilo1534851321htac@1534851321reill1534851321ohc1534851321.
A note of cameras and smart phones:
We ask that all volunteers help us respect the confidentiality of our patrons. If you plan to use a camera or video recorder (or any recording device, including a smart phone) during your time of volunteering, please only take photos or videos of yourself and/or the group of which you are a part. Please do not take photos or videos of patrons.
