Dress comfortably and wear your Sharp Lends a Hand T-shirt. Be sure to dress in clothes that can get a little dirty and wear closed-toe shoes; no sandals or heels allowed for safety reasons. Depending on the weather, you can also want to wear a hat, jacket and sunscreen. You may also bring your own work gloves. All other tools and supplies are provided.
Feel free to bring your own snacks and refreshments. In order to reduce single-use plastics, you are encouraged to bring your own reusable water bottle with water to drink.
Please leave purses, jewelry and other valuables at home or locked in your car. Sharp HealthCare and the Friends of the San Diego River Mouth will not be responsible for any missing personal belongings.
How do I obtain a Sharp Lends a Hand T-shirt?
The Sharp Lends a Hand T-shirts are not event-specific, so if you have volunteered in a past event, you don't need to obtain another T-shirt. If you are volunteering for the first time, you may pick up your T-shirt at Spectrum by going to the second floor and following the signs to the T-shirt location. We have sizes ranging from child medium to adult XXXL.
