    Lisa - I'm sorry but I've had car trouble and they were able to fit me in later today. Not sure how long or what the deal is. I've been back in Chicago and miss working with you. Hopefully next time!

    Hi Laura - Definitely dress for comfort. They have giant fans but the warehouse isn't air conditioned. It will get warm today as we start working. Anything goes as long as you have closed toe shoes. I'll see you tonight!!

      Any other clothing suggestions? This will be my first time volunteering there and wasn't sure if it gets really hot, cold or whatever.
