Volunteer Information

  • Volunteer Premium Pick-Up

    Volunteers will be able to pick up their Brooks Brothers premium at the Volunteer Tent as early as Friday, October 19th. Please note that each Volunteer must pick up their own premium, and they will be required to present a photo-ID. You may not send someone to claim your premium. If you are unable to claim your premium in the allotted hours, please contact your Committee Co-Chair.

    Volunteer Tent Hours:

    Friday, October 19th: 11AM – 6PM

    Saturday, October 20th: 6AM – 5:30PM

    Sunday, October 21st: 6AM – 1PM


  • What to Bring

    As most Volunteers will be outside during the weekend, you are encouraged to leave valuables at home. While spectators may have their dogs, we ask that Volunteers leave their non-service animals at home while they are working.


    Lunch and water will be provided, but Volunteers are encouraged to bring a water bottle to reduce waste.

  • What to Wear

    As most Volunteers will be outside the duration of the weekend, it is important to anticipate the seasonal transition of October in Boston. Please wear sunscreen, a hat, sunglasses, warm non-cotton layers, and have a waterproof option. It is your responsibility to dress according to the weather. While we do distribute a Brooks Brothers premium to wear while you are working, please dress in layers and bring a jacket.
