Helpful Information as You Begin

Thank you for your interest in the City Rescue Mission of Lansing and for your desire to BE a RESCUER by volunteering to help us help others!
 
Once you have submitted your application the volunteer coordinator will contact you via phone or e-mail to discuss volunteer.

Important Information:
• For our convenience and yours, we utilize all court-ordered community service volunteers at our thrift store. This opportunity has a wide range of hours, including evening and weekends, not usually available at our shelter facilities.
• We will be sending you some more information on scheduling and tasks for the opportunity. Please read all emails carefully.
• All volunteers are required to fill out the Volunteer Contact Form (page 2), which includes information for a background check. We are very careful with your privacy; however, for the safety of our guests and staff, we do background checks on all volunteers.
• Due to scheduling and the needs of the store, we cannot accommodate last minute requests.
• We do have a two day probation policy for volunteers. After the two day probation period is successfully completed, we will extend the opportunity in two week intervals or until your hourly requirement is met.
• We do not provide meals of any kind nor, if the schedule time is four hours or less, will we necessarily provide a break (dependent on how busy the store is). Please bring your own meal and make sure you are comfortably dressed if working for an extended amount of time. Meals and breaks are not counted toward volunteer hours. You are required to sign-out for any breaks.
• Below is the store information for you to verify that available times/locations work for your needs.
