An  On Iowa! volunteer shirt will be given to all new volunteers at no charge.  Shirts will be available in August. The August volunteer confirmation e-mail will provide you with more details on where and when to pick up your shirt.


  • We can accommodate only individuals who have been confirmed to volunteer.  We will not be able to accommodate volunteer family members, minors and pets.
  • Please dress comfortably (tennis shoes, shorts, etc.) and wear your On Iowa! volunteer t-shirt.
  • Wearing a name tag or office button is encouraged; name tags will also be provided at the volunteer locations.
  • Please leave valuables at home (there is not a place to put purses, backpacks, etc.).
  • Volunteers are encouraged to bring a refillable water bottle to stay hydrated throughout their shift.
  • We encourage volunteers to wear sunscreen if you are working a shift during peak sun hours.
  • Parking suggestions/maps will be provided at a later date.
  • Once your volunteer shift is over, we ask that you exit the volunteer event.
