Posted by: HFCFThe first Saturday of every month the HFCF volunteers will be the lead team. It is helpful if everyone learns most stations in order to be flexible about station placement and assigned duties. MHC really needs all-hands-on-deck, so please come and be ready to work. Please bring toiletries to donate if you have them - hotel sizes are great! Don't park in the MHC designated parking lot. Find your own space on the street, there are plenty available and it is metered and unmetered, so bring quarters or the app. If you want a personal water bottle, you can bring it.
