Screening Questions
When a volunteer has access to confidential information (Meals on Wheels Diablo Region, Fall Prevention, Office Volunteer) or visits a senior in their home (Friendly Visitor Program), a background check is required. Our volunteer screener, Sterling Volunteers, requests a $16.00 fee to cover the cost of a background check. You have a choice to cover the cost of the screening - either in part or in full - off-setting this expense for MOWDR. If you do not choose to cover this charge, it will be absorbed by MOWDR. I am willing/able to make this donation:
I am in good health and free of communicable diseases:
Have you ever volunteered before?
