Volunteer Guidelines
Thank you for volunteering with LPF! The success of our organization depends largely upon volunteers like you.

As you work in the warehouse, please keep the following guidelines in mind:
  • Please be respectful and courteous to all people at all times. When you are in the warehouse, remember that you are representing LPF. This means not engaging in potentially offensive behavior, including cursing, horseplay, and wearing clothes that are potentially offensive.
  • Communication should be respectful and professional at all times. Everyone is volunteering to serve and help others, and that should be the spirit of every interaction- with donors, grantees, and other volunteers.
  • Slow down! Rushing to unpack and move items can cause injury to people and equipment.
  • Remember to lift items properly (with your legs, not your back) and to take breaks when you need them.
  • Be kind to the floors and walls. Please do not drag equipment as it may scuff or damage the floor.
  • Please do not fill empty shelves/boxes with items that do not belong there. If there is no space in the designated area, please ask a staff member for assistance.
  • If a piece of equipment is taken apart, please tape together and label all of the pieces.
  • If you are uncertain of anything,please ask a staff member, intern, or experienced volunteer for help.
