An off-season event that I VC for is exploring some different options to our volunteer benefits at the event. Currently, all volunteers receive an event specific volunteer shirt, hot breakfast and lunch cooked onsite by the team caterer (and pizza if they really want it), and thank you’s from the team. In the interest of cost saving and reducing excess, we’re exploring alternatives to the event-specific volunteer shirts in favor of other solutions, but we want to make sure that our volunteers know that we appreciate them, without just giving them another robotics shirt for their growing collection.
What are some of your favorite volunteer gifts that you’ve received in the past? What do you think would make a good gift? How much do you want to actually add another robot shirt to your collection?
