Cancellation Policy

If you can’t make your volunteer commitment:

If you find you must cancel your commitment several days before the shelter, please email unionvc[@] to let us know ASAP so that we can find another volunteer.

If you must cancel on the day of your commitment, please, do not simply fail to show up!! We must have every volunteer for the shelter to open and the other volunteers are depending on you to be there. Cancellation with warning is better than chaos. Call Kara immediately. If you can’t reach Kara, inform the volunteers serving with you (you should have contact info in the email sent to volunteers for your specific night). If no replacement can be found, we will cancel the shelter.
