Thank you for volunteering to be a shopping chaperone at this year’s Soroptimist Back-to- School Shopping Spree on Saturday, August 5 th . We are proud to say this will be the twenty-fifth consecutive year Soroptimists facilitate the distribution of school clothes, supplies and backpacks to elementary school children. This wonderful event could not take place without your support, and we truly appreciate your willingness to invest in our community’s youth.

In accordance with Soroptimist International’s newly adopted Child Protection Policy, a sex offender background check must be performed on all volunteers working with children. Fulfilling this requirement will require an additional step to your shopping chaperone registration process.

Once you have registered as a shopping chaperone with your Hanford Soroptimist, you will receive a registration confirmation email, and within 2-3 days another email with instructions on how to complete the background check. Your Hanford Soroptimists have contracted with Info Cubic, an online screening service, which will run your sex offender back ground check. A link to Info Cubic’s website will be provided in your instructions email. It will only take a few minutes of your time to provide Info Cubic with the information required. There will be a $10 charge to run your 50 state sex offender background check. We ask that you pay this by credit card. You will be reimbursed the $10 fee by Hanford Soroptimist. Reimbursement will be made by cash when you sign in at the Spree.

We hope you understand this new sex offender background check policy is intended to protect the safety and welfare of the student participants. Volunteers may not participate in the Spree without Info Cubic clearance.

We are also seeking financial sponsors to provide funding for this event. You can help by spreading the word and/or making a personal donation. Soroptimist International is a 501(c) 3, Tax ID #94-6107889, and your donation is tax deductible. 100% of your contribution will go towards providing clothes for the kids.
