LIABILITY WAIVER AND RELEASE OF CLAIMS:

I acknowledge that I derive personal satisfaction and a benefit by virtue of my participation and/or voluntarism with Heart of Dinner, and I willingly engage in Heart of Dinner events and/or other activities (the “Activity”).

COVID-19 SAFETY INFORMATION:

While participating in events held or sponsored by Heart of Dinner, consistent with CDC guidelines, participants are encouraged to abide by the preventative measures listed below to reduce the risks of exposure to COVID-19. Because COVID-19 is extremely contagious and is spread mainly from person-to-person contact, Heart of Dinner has put in place preventative measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19. However, Heart of Dinner cannot guarantee that its participants, volunteers, partners, or others in attendance will not become infected with COVID-19.

 

PREVENTATIVE MEASURES

For any and all Heart of Dinner related activity or operations, we ask that you please be mindful of your own safety, as well as the safety of our beloved Elderly recipients and fellow volunteers. To keep everyone as safe as possible so that we can continue to carry forth the mission of countering isolation and food insecurity within the Asian Elderly communities with basic necessities of nutritious comfort food and handwritten notes that lift the morale, please be sure to follow the below protocols: 

  • You must be fully vaccinated. 

  • In order to operate or participate in any Heart of Dinner activity, you must show proof of vaccination and ID or else you will not be allowed to operate or participate. 

  • Keep 6 feet distance apart from others whenever possible. 

  • Wear disposable gloves at ALL times when packing and delivering care packages.

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.

  • Wear masks at ALL times (if you are not wearing a KN95 or N95 mask, please double mask.)

  • If possible, open windows and/or doors for ventilation and bring layers of winter clothing to stay warm.

  • Separate yourself at least 6 feet distance from others when removing your mask to eat or drink.

  • For additional preventative measures, refer to the CDC for the their up-to-date preventative guidelines by clicking here.

IF EXPOSED TO SOMEONE WHO TESTS POSITIVE WITH COVID-19 WHILE VOLUNTEERING WITH HEART OF DINNER: 

Refer to the CDC for the their up-to-date guidelines on next steps for those who may have been exposed while volunteering with or participating in Heart of Dinner activities. Click here for the full CDC guidelines.

 

For volunteers who are fully vaccinated, please read the below statement copied/pasted directly from the CDC guidelines: "Quarantine if you have been in close contact (within 6 feet of someone for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more over a 24-hour period) with someone who has COVID-19, unless you have been fully vaccinated. People who are fully vaccinated do NOT need to quarantine after contact with someone who had COVID-19 unless they have symptoms. However, fully vaccinated people should get tested 5-7 days after their exposure, even if they don’t have symptoms and wear a mask indoors in public for 14 days following exposure or until their test result is negative."

In light of the ongoing spread of COVID-19, individuals who fall within any of the categories below should not engage in Heart of Dinner events and/or other face-to-face activities. By attending a Heart of Dinner event, you certify that you do not fall into any of the following categories:

As much as we would love to bring on all of the elderly in our neighborhoods, we have reached our maximum capacity. Please apply for our waiting list and when we are able to expand, we hope to bring on more elderly recipients as soon as our bandwidth and capacity will allow!

How do I include some elders to receive your care packages/meals?
