How to Volunteer
There is no complicated sign-up process. Just show up!
All you need to do is give rescue workers driving by a "thumbs-up",
wave, clap, cheer, hold up a "thank you" sign, or wave a flag. You don't even need to bring your own sign - there
are plenty available.
There is no minimum time committment. Stay for a minute, or as long as you can. Come anytime,
day or night, as often as you're able.
It's so simple. It's so direct. It's one of the best things you can do!
Other Ways You Can Help
No cash donations are needed or accepted.
If you're unable to come down and cheer, there are a few other ways
you can help the Point Thank You efforts:
- Bring down a "Thank You" sign for someone else to hold. Signs
don't need to be works of art - a simple "Thank You" written on a piece of cardboard is fine.
- We can
also use hand-held flags to wave at passing rescue workers.
- Help from neighborhood businesses is appreciated.
Whether it be putting one of our flyers up in your store window, or providing free and/or portable restroom services for some
of our volunteers, every little bit helps!
- Spread the word about Point Thank You. Volunteers are always needed,
especially now, as the weather gets colder. Signs at Point Thank You are available to interested volunteers 24 hours a day,
7 days a week.
