Morning shifts are 11:00-1:00 and afternoon shifts are 1:00-4:00. You can do a whole day or two half days. We have shifts from Wednesday - Sunday, with urgent need on the weekends. If you are a night owl you may be interested in volunteering for South first Friday's when we are free to the public and open 7:00pm-10:00pm the first Friday of every month. Also there are other volunteer opportunities in education and marketing.
