To help us cover our utilities and material costs for assisting the residents here whom we serve, we do ask $20/person/day for our short-term volunteers (those working with us for one week or less) up until March. Starting March, for short-term volunteers, we are asking $25/person/day. For our long-term volunteers (those working with us for more than a week), we ask only a one-time fee of $70.

to volunteers)? We provide the food and the kitchen, and volunteers organize the cooking
