To RSVP for the Volunteer Breakfast
Step One – Who Will Pay?: Cost is $10.00 per person. Organizations need to decide who will pay for the meal(s) - the nominating organization or the nominated volunteer(s). (It’s okay to ask the volunteers to pay for themselves if there is a large group; and/or you don’t have the budget.) You will also need to decide who will pay for any guests of the volunteer(s).
Step Two – Communicate With Your Nominees(s): Let your nominees know of your plans. You can send a letter, an email, or tell them personally about registration for the Breakfast. This is important to reduce confusion and ensure we don’t receive any double-RSVPs or double-payments.
Step Three – RSVP For The Breakfast

- Fill out the registration form and return it with your payment – OR –

If the volunteers will RSVP and pay:
- Organization needs to provide copies of the enclosed form to the volunteer(s).
