MAKE YOUR TIME COUNT!
What to track: Volunteers must track their hours every single time they visit/work with refugees. This is very important, for it’s how WR Triad receives funding for helping our refugees. This log will allow volunteers to do three things:
- track the number of hours spent volunteering (including transportation time)
- track the amount of miles driven to and from volunteer location during volunteer time
- track any kind of donations given to refugees
Below are the steps to log all your volunteer hours, mileage and donations.
Please make sure to list your refugee’s family/individual names in the note section.
****Note: Some of you might already be in the system. If that is the case, please go to the following link and enter your email address, it should prompt you to enter a new password:
Wondering how to log the information?
These are the fields you need to fill out:
Due date: Logs are to be completed for each month by the 5th of the following month.Some tips:
The number of hours volunteered includes travel time to and from the volunteer location.
The number of hours volunteered also includes the time spent hanging out as friends with refugees.
For logs sent via email, a typed name is acceptable for a ‘volunteer signature.’
When filling out ‘total miles driven,’ this includes miles driven during volunteering EVERY TIME. If volunteers carpool, however, only the driver should track mileage.
When filling out ‘donations,’ be sure to list:
A description of donated item.
The number of items donated
The cash value of the donated item.
If an item was new when donated, the volunteer should attach a receipt to the volunteer logs.
For any questions regarding the submission of Volunteer hours, mileage, or donations, please contact us at TriadVC@wr.org.
