Tote Distributors pick up the packed totes from the Waynseville VISTA office located in the Pick Educational and Volunteer Facility each Thursday and Friday morning and deliver their tote directly to their designated school. Extended weekend and Holiday totes are some times larger and heavier, they also might require a different delivery day then normal. Tote Distributions requires a reliable vehicle and a lifting partner volunteer.
Tote Retrievers are responsible for collecting empty totes from their designated schools and returning the totes to the Waynesville VISTA office in the Pick Educational and Volunteer Facility. Tote Retrievers may return totes on Monday or Tuesday between 8:00am and 3:00pm.
Fundraiser Volunteers make themselves available to support various SIAP fundraising events in numerous ways including holding their own fundraisers and food drives. Volunteers can donate baked goods for Bake Sales, while others volunteer their time at specific fundraising events, and some others do behind the scene work.
