Come Volunteer With Us

Thank you! We’ll be in touch.

Welcome to the Cleaning Hands for You Team!

 

Dear Team Member,

Thank you for choosing to be a part of the Cleaning Hands For You team! We are thrilled to have you on board and look forward to working together. Our mission is to make a positive impact on the community, and your contribution is vital to our success.

Here are some important guidelines and information to ensure a smooth and successful experience with us:

 

Cell Phone Usage: While on duty or volunteering, please refrain from using your cell phone unless there is an extreme emergency or during designated breaks. Our focus should always be on serving our clients and maintaining professionalism. It's acceptable to use your phone during breaks or away from the booth.


 

Background Check: We conduct background checks on all our volunteers. Please allow up to 48 hours for the background check process before you can volunteer at any event. Feel free to refer others interested in volunteering; we welcome their participation.

 

Volunteering at Events: Arrive at least fifteen minutes before your scheduled event time. Typically, we aim to have two to three team members present at our booth during events. While volunteering, ensure that at least one or two individuals stay at the booth (depending on the event's traffic) while others can take short breaks. Shifts are usually 2-4 hours each without a break. If you wish to volunteer more later in the day, you are welcome to do so. Please note that volunteer hour forms will be filled out for school, work, or other purposes only after the hours have been completed. Keep track of your hours for your own records.

 

Food and Drinks: It's highly recommended that you bring your own beverages and snacks to events to avoid the high cost of food at the venues. After 3-4 hours, you may have the opportunity to take a limited break and get food from nearby vendors. Please manage your own food and drinks.

 

Bathroom Breaks: Be mindful of potentially long wait times for restroom access at some events. Consider bringing a small container of disinfectant spray for added hygiene. If friends or family are also volunteering, please maintain your focus on volunteering and greet familiar faces briefly.

Also if they drop by just wave, say hi with a warm smile and continue to volunteer.  

 

Drop-off and Pick-up: You are responsible for your transportation to and from events. Make sure to communicate with your ride about event times, as we may occasionally leave earlier than scheduled.

 

Call Outs: If you cannot make your scheduled time, please notify us at least 48 hours in advance if possible. Last-minute callouts may affect your credibility as a volunteer. Please provide a two-week notice if you need time off for vacation or other reasons.

 

Pictures Taken at Events: We will take pictures at events and post them on our social media platforms to showcase our activities. In the future, regular volunteers will receive a Cleaning Hands for You (CHFY) T-shirt. If you take high-quality pictures with your phone, please send them to us for sharing on our social media channels.

 

Calendar of Events and Holidays: We will provide you with a calendar of events, but additional events and tasks may be added as needed. Please keep an eye on safety measures while volunteering and understand that you are participating at your own risk. You, your heir or anyone else agree to not sue for any reason! You are responsible for your safety or other unforeseen things. 

 

Suggestions and Ideas: We value your input and welcome any suggestions or ideas to enhance our events. Pay attention to what other organizations are doing at events and let us know if we can incorporate any of those ideas.

 

Safety Tips: Safety is a top priority. 

  • Always be aware of your surroundings. 

  • Take your cell phone with you when you leave the booth so if you need help, you can call on your cell.

  • Don’t go off with anyone without letting others know; stay together.

  • When it is time to leave, let others know.

  • Be aware of busy streets when crossing; don’t be distracted when crossing. 

  • Park as close as possible to the area of the event and look

  •  for a well-lit place to park. 

Being Safe: Safety in the workplace is essential, and we expect everyone to prioritize it. Please note that we do not carry insurance, as you are considered a 1099 contractor. By joining us, you agree not to take legal actions against Cleaning Hands For You or any clients or companies we serve or volunteer for.

 

Always A Clean Sweep: We have a sister company called Always A Clean Sweep, which offers paid opportunities for commercial and residential cleaning. Let us know if you're interested in working for them when opportunities arise.

 

Expectations for Cleaning Homes: When helping clean homes, always maintain politeness and professionalism. Arrive fifteen minutes early for work or volunteer assignments. Work at a steady pace without rushing while paying attention to details. Please follow the routine we have trained you in to minimize the need for re-cleaning. If you have questions, don't hesitate to ask.

 

Theft and Inappropriate Conduct: Theft is a crime, and we take it seriously. Keep an eye on donation boxes at events and report any suspicious activity. Maintain professionalism in your conversations and interactions. Report any inappropriate behavior immediately, as we want everyone to feel comfortable and respected.

Dress Code for Work:

  • Wear a plain black or purple T-shirt with no writing. Ensure it is long enough so that your midsection is not exposed when you raise your arms.

  • Choose dark brown, khaki, or black pants. Avoid sagging pants.

  • During the summertime, you may wear Capri pants or regular pants only in dark brown or black. Shorts are not allowed.

  • Opt for closed-toe and closed-heel shoes with non-slip soles. Tennis shoes are acceptable, but dress shoes are not permitted.

 

Dress Code for Events:

  • Wear nice pants or khaki in any color. Sagging pants and shorts are not allowed.

  • Choose a blouse with sleeves. Avoid spaghetti sleeve blouses.

  • Do not wear jogging or yoga pants.

  • Select comfortable closed-toe and closed-heel shoes suitable for extended standing.

  • Avoid stomach or mid-short blouses.

  • T-shirts  plain  or our logo are acceptable color purple or black.

  • Cover any tattoos with unpleasant writing.

  • Use common sense for anything not mentioned in the dress code and seek approval before wearing or doing it.

 

Other Areas Needed for Volunteering:

  • I am seeking two volunteers to assist me, the founder, with various tasks.

  • An assistant secretary will provide support as needed.

  • Assist the financial personnel with their requirements.

  • Help with business marketing.

  • Assist with editing and typing up documents.

  • Manage posts on our social media sites, including Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, and B2B.

  • Send out mass emails to potential donors.

  • Create care cards online.

  • Having a vehicle to help at events would be helpful.

  • Knowledge of how to post on Eventbrite is a plus.

  • Most work can be done online (virtually).

 

If possible, I would prefer the person to commit to at least two years or more.

  • For college students, after the initial two years, I am willing to provide a recommendation letter based on your work and the hours you contributed. This recommendation can help you stand out when applying for other positions.

 

I have read and agree to the above statements. Pages 1 – 5
