How do I sign up to volunteer on Thanksgiving Day?

Sign up by clicking the button below. You must sign up prior to Thanksgiving Day to reserve your spot!


If my entire family/group wants to volunteer, do we each need to sign up for a spot?

No, only sign up one person per family/group. If your family/group wants to deliver more than one meal, sign up for the appropriate number of spots. For example, if you have a family/group of six, and you want to deliver two meals, simply have one person sign up for two spots.


Do I have to sign up to volunteer or can I just show up on Thanksgiving Day?

You have to sign up ahead of time or you will not be assigned a family. Once the 100 volunteer spots are full, the opportunity will be closed.

 


What am I signing up to do as a volunteer?

As a volunteer, you will be responsible for picking up your assigned family’s meal and delivering it to the correct address on Thanksgiving Day. After signing up online, all details pertaining to the event will be emailed to you.


How long is the volunteer commitment?

You will pick up the prepared food at Barley & Board between 9:30 am and 11:30 am on Thanksgiving Day. Once you pick up the food, you will immediately drop it off to your assigned family. This should take about an hour, but can vary depending on the time you arrive to pick up the food.


As a volunteer, where do I pick up the food?

Barley & Board - 100 W Oak St Denton, TX  76201. Details on parking coming soon!

 


How do I know where to take the food after I pick it up?

After signing up to volunteer, you will be sent an email with details pertaining to delivering food, which will include the family's address you will be delivering the meal to.


What if I cannot locate the family’s address?

If you are using a GPS system, try an alternative system. For example, if Apple Maps is not working, try locating the address on Google Maps.


The family is not home, what do I do with their meal?

Wait 3-5 minutes after knocking and/ or ringing their door bell, and if no one comes to the door, leave the bag on their front porch.


If I am no longer able to volunteer on Thanksgiving Day, what do I do?

Please try to find a friend or family member who can fill your spot. If that is not possible, please email volunteer@servedenton.org asap.

*If you email day of the event, please do not expect a response.


Where do I send photos from the day? 

After getting permission from the family, feel free to take photos with them or with your family/ group throughout the day.

Please text your photos to Serve Denton at (940) 268-5898 so we can share them!
