Where should I park?
Volunteers will park at Walnut Hills High School, assemble in their teams and then board busses to their houses. We will email you the meeting location’s address and specific parking instructions the week of the event.
Can I volunteer for only a partial day?
Yes and no. Painting a house requires a full day commitment. If you are unable to paint for a full day, we have non-painting volunteer roles with various time commitments throughout the day. Please email email@example.com for more information.
Can my relative/friend that is under 18 volunteer with me?
No, all painting volunteers must be at least 18 years old. There are some non-painting volunteer roles suitable for a volunteer under 18 if they have a parent or legal guardian with them.
