Wear appropriate clothing. Be aware of your surroundings and make sure projects are age appropriate. Never pick up any dangerous items. Call the non-emergency police number, 577-7434, if you find any items of concern. Keep it Fun! Encourage everyone to get involved. Invite area businesses, non- profit groups and government agencies to help. Keep a list of everyone who lends a hand so you can say “Thank You” to all your volunteers. Use the time wisely so volunteers can feel they did a good job without being over worked or bored. Pick the Right Spot. Pick a location that needs community support and is easily accessible for your volunteers. If you need to travel setup carpooling and meeting locations so everyone arrives together. Get all necessary approval in advance before starting the project. Contact NO Cuts (PUPS) at 1-888-721-7877 if you will be planting to prevent accidental damage to utility lines. If you need help selecting a location contact Jennifer Scales with Keep Charleston Beautiful at 579-7501. Organize Tools and Supplies. GLAD generously supplies the plastic trash bags and Keep Charleston Beautiful will supply cleanup gloves. Make sure your volunteers have all other equipment necessary to successfully and safely complete the project. Remember, you can ask local businesses for donations to support your project. Don’t Overdo. Have planned breaks with water and snacks available. Work hard but also make sure to have fun and be safe!
