Each parish will do things a little differently but these are the most common ways you can help volunteer.
Be a Territory Leader or helper
Each territory needs a leader and a team of helpers to distribute empty bags one day and then to collect the filled bags the day of the event – approximately 2 hours for each part. You can pick your territory on the sign up page for your parish. Each territory is approximately 150 - 200 houses. More than one family can be on a team!
Prayer Service/Post Celebration (day of event)
These volunteers coordinate refreshments for before prayer service and after can collection at the drop off site.
Collection Site (day of event)
Each parish needs several volunteers to help take bags of cans from the cars that are dropping off and transfer them to the donation vehicles and trucks. This is a great opportunity for 8th Grade Confirmation candidates and high school students who need service hours.
Sweeper Team (week after event)
These volunteers go out and pick up missed bags from houses who have called or emailed to notify us of a missed bag.
