Guiding Principles

Most non-profits agencies track the number of volunteers and hours donated in support of their services. With the submission and tracking of volunteer hours the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank can provide summary reports of service hours to our partner agencies. These reports also allow us to use the value of donated volunteer hours as an in-kind match for grants and other funding support.

Volunteer Rights:

  • You should be treated as a co-worker by staff members at the agency.
  • You should be given assignments that utilize and develop your skills.
  • You should be given adequate information and training to carry out your assignments.
  • You should receive guidance and supervision by a staff member.
  • You should feel free to discuss problems, ask questions, or make suggestions.
  • You should have a designated place to work.
  • You should receive recognition of a job well done.

Volunteer Expectations

Volunteers expect and enjoy certain rights when they donate their time. Volunteers, however, have specific responsibilities to the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank.  We count on you! Please fulfill your shift commitment.

  • You must be dependable, reliable, businesslike, and abide by the agreement you make with the Issaquah Food and Clothing Bank.
  • You must notify us if it is not possible to meet your commitment as planned.
