Wondering about what to wear to the annual UCLA Volunteer Day on Tuesday, September 20? Â It doesnâ€™t matter if you are going to be painting, planting, or mentoring – here are some essential items to bring that will ensure you have a comfortable and productive day:
Of course, you cannot forget your official UCLA Volunteer t-shirt! Â New students will receive theirs on Monday or Tuesday, and it is a great way to show off some school spirit while staying comfortable and prepared for all types of volunteering.
Bring comfortable, close-toed shoes that you wouldnâ€™t mind getting a little dirty; they will keep your feet safe and happy throughout the day. Â Sandals and open-toed shoes are prohibited.
Next, make sure to wear some comfortable bottoms. Â Jeans and bottoms that you wouldnâ€™t mind getting dirty are strongly advised.Â Just make sure that you can work and move easily while wearing them!
Donâ€™t forget about sun protection. Hats and sunglasses are great ways to shield yourself from the hot LA sun, but most importantly, make sure you put on some sunscreen.
Lastly, make sure you bring your smart phone! Â Join the thousands of volunteers who will be live-tweeting, blogging, and posting on Volunteer Day â€“ check out the Mobile Campaign Page today to get started.
