Why are we asking people to serve in this way?

It takes a lot of people to support this one-day, citywide effort! While most of our volunteers are assigned to work at specific locations, we also need a few key teams of “roaming” volunteers on the day of this event – people actively supporting dozens of sites in the city. The Debris Team is one of those roaming teams.

What can I expect?

ForColumbia 2024 Volunteer T-ShirtsThis group of volunteers will initially meet at Boone County Lumber; they will work in teams, driving their own trucks (and in some cases, pulling trailers) to:

  • pick up large trash items from work sites and deliver them to one of several large city dumpsters being used exclusively by ForColumbia volunteers and;
  • potentially run any other last-minute errands that require a truck for pick-up/delivery.

What should I bring?

ForColumbia will cover the cost of volunteers’ fuel.

  • Volunteers are encouraged to bring tools such as chainsaws, tree trimmers, loppers, or other similar tools.
  • Volunteers will also need heavy work gloves. And maybe Advil. 🙂
  • We encourage all volunteers to wear closed-toed shoes, preferably work boots.
  • Please bring straps, rope, or bungee cords to tie down the items you’re hauling in your truck if you can.
  • Be sure to wear your #ForColumbia T-shirt!

Can my children serve with me?

Older elementary kids are welcome to join their parents on this team.
