Has anyone successfully taken the bus to go volunteer? If so, which routes?

I registered for December 8. Are we supposed to receive something by email or do we just show up and say we are volunteering?

Hey Diana! In the trail of lights group, there is a Public Documents link where you can get more information about the event and parking passes. You may also go here: https://www.givepulse.com/document/public/521?title=Trail+of+Lights

I think Baby Ruth will be sending out another message to all of you soon about details and keeping warm :)

I just got an email that says I'm registered for the 16th and the 19th, but on here it says I am registered for 5 shifts. Which one should I go by? and why are the dates so different from my email and my account?

So the notification that you got was just an email confirming your updated dates. GivePulse schedule is always the correct one. We have you down for December 15, 16, 19, 20 and 22.

i have been volunteering for about 6 years, and i love this place, it brings me back to when i was a little girl, my house was small with lots of lights, covering every inch of the corners so me being small it was a castle to me. every thing about the lights and animals, snow takes me there again and again. now i am a grandmother and i am blessed to share this with them.
