Volunteered during the King 5 Hometeam Heroes food drive last winter. I was a sign waiver and cash counter. They provided volunteers with coffee, donuts, breakfast sandwiches/burritos and local Seattle chocolate. Everyone was extremely friendly and it was well organized. I would definitely volunteer again.
