Additional Benefits for Volunteers
Volunteering should not create a financial burden. 因此, you may request reimbursement for certain out-of-pocket expenses if they create a hardship for you.

When you enroll in 发请帖 you will be provided accident and excess liability insurance that covers you while traveling between home and the site, as well as during your volunteer time. The accident and excess liability coverage are intended to provide higher levels of insurance for you, beginning where your own insurance coverage stops. They are excess, not primary coverage. 这是真的, 太, for personal liability; if you are not covered by personal liability insurance, the 发请帖 personal liability insurance becomes the primary insurance with no deductible.
