*Active In-Club Volunteer Hours

Active volunteer hours are those served during events organized by the Cumberland Valley Key Club. If you know of an event that needs volunteers, please contact cvsdkeyclub@gmail.com and ask if it can be included in the club’s events!

*Collections Hours

Throughout the school year, you may hand in the following to Mr. Lutz's room (212) for collections hours:

        1 sandwich bag (up to a total of 3) of soda tabs for 1 hour

        15 glossy magazines (up to a total of 45 per year) for 1 hour 20 Box Tops (up to a total of 60 per year) for 1 hour


There will also be clothing, food drives, and charity collections (i.e. UNICEF, LLS, etc) at announced times that will allow you to earn collections hours.

NEW THIS YEAR (Extra Collections): Submit 2 high-quality photos of you volunteering for 1 collections hour (must have photos of YOU in them - we want to see your smiling faces!) to room 212 in the designated grade binder under the "Collections Photos" tab. Please include a 2-3 sentence description of what you are doing in the photo. Descriptions can be written on the back of the photo in pen. Photos must be printed in color, preferably, and should be roughly 3'' x 5''. They should be cut out ahead of time. We'd love to have as many people as possible take advantage of this! *We will be creating a Key Club PHOTO WALL for each grade to show off your volunteering commitment! Please be sure to label donations with your name, and log donations in the designated binder.) A collection hour may also be acquired by emailing 7 event photos to cvsdkeyclub@gmail.com Additionally, there will be seasonal service projects (i.e. UNICEF, Operation Christmas Child, Pet Food Donation Drive) to earn collection hours. *Meeting Hours

We ask that you try your best to make EVERY meeting throughout the year. If that is not possible, please attempt to attend at least 2-3 each semester for a total of at least 4 meetings.

- 1 hour is granted for those who attend entire meeting

- 0.5 hour is granted for those who attend but must leave early for another obligation (i.e. sports, appointments, etc.

- If you can not make a meeting but have a chance to “check in” between 3:00-3:10 (pm) to see what information is being given, we will have you sign in and keep this for our records. No hours will be given for this check in. However, if you then regularly participate in other volunteer categories (besides meetings), we will know that you at least tried to stay in contact with the club through these “check ins” and you can remain in good standing.

*Outside Hours

As a club that seeks to serve its school and community, we hope that you are seeking to volunteer on your own. We ask that you find ways to volunteer outside of the club’s events. When you complete these hours, you may submit an individual hours form to Mr. Fish which can be found on the website (make sure to take with you when you volunteer).

AS A RULE OF THUMB- If you are volunteering for something that you would list on an activities resume on its own (i.e. volunteer camp counselor, internship at a hospital, etc), these hours should NOT be submitted toward your outside hours.

*SENIORS must have all hours completed by April 17, 2019 to earn graduation stole

SIGNING UP FOR EVENTS

*If you would like to sign up to volunteer, visit the Key Club website and click on the “Volunteer Opportunities” page. Here, you can enter your information (name, grade, e-mail, phone) and sign up for an event shift.

*If you can not attend an event because of an EMERGENCY, please contact us IMMEDIATELY.

IF YOU SIGN UP FOR A SHIFT, MAKE SURE TO MARK YOUR CALENDAR AND ARRIVE ON THE DESIGNATED DATE/TIME.

ATTENDANCE POLICY FOR EVENTS

If you sign up and do not show up, you are taking away that “spot” from another member who could have volunteered AND letting down the organizers of the event.

1)    If you can not attend an event because of an EMERGENCY, please contact cvsdkeyclub@gmail.com

2)    The most responsible action you can take if a non-emergency conflict comes up with your shift is to find a fellow member to cover the time slot, and alert cvsdkeyclub@gmail.com of their name and number of hours served at the event.

3)    No shows without notification:

-1st warning: Minus 1 hour from yearly total

-2nd warning: Minus the # of hours for which you signed up for the event
