§  Traditional Method

§  Purchase and drop off at one of three locations between specific times

§  Purchase and ship to one of three locations, note address may vary depending on if ship or drop off

The current plan is that only 2 people will collect and sort.  However, depending on host requests for us to collect and in line with current COVID-19 guidelines, we may ask more of the team to get involved.  


o   Sorting in Barons (GGT Grotto Location) will only be carried out by two people at a time, this may be increased based on space available to sort, this will be decided closer to collection day based on most recent COVID-19 guidelines.

o   All GGT Volunteers will wear masks, regularly sanitize their hands and comply with social distancing requirements during collections and sorting.  

o   COPE and Simon will be taking direct delivery and drop of this year and they will apply their own COVID-19 policies in those locations.
