Day Pass Volunteer Program 

On occasion, someone with a volunteer spirit will pass through town on vacation or on business. Sometimes these people offer to spend some of their valuable time volunteering. This program was designed to allow these special, out of towners, to volunteer at the League on a day by day basis. 

Criteria for becoming a Day Pass Volunteer:

  • Our age requirement is 17 years of age or older (adults with children under 17 cannot volunteer together on campus. Youth opportunities can be found here).
  • Those interested in the Day Pass program must email the Volunteer Manager at least three (3) days prior to their arrival on campus to schedule a brief meeting. We cannot accommodate 'walk in' volunteers.  
  • Day Pass Volunteers must be able to commit to a minimum 2 hour shift. 
  • Those needing to fulfill court appointed community service hours are not eligible to be Day Pass Volunteers. Click here to learn more about the Court Appointed Community Service Program.

Day Pass Volunteers will assist with stocking shelves, inventory, community cat food prep and general cleaning of the Pantry. Hours of Operation: Monday - Saturday, 10am - 5pm 
    • Requirements: ability to lift 25+ lbs., customer service skills and the ability to work independently.

    • Requirements: ability to lift 25+ lbs., tolerance of heat, ability to walk unaided and to work independently.

    • Requirements: ability to lift 25+ lbs., ability to take instrucition and work independently


Day Pass Volunteers will be required to complete a guest application prior to their first shift.
