Volunteer Clearances

In accordance with the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the designation of our volunteers as “regular” rather than “occasional,” all of our volunteers complete the following clearance checks. All paperwork for clearances are keept on file. All record checks need to have been completed after July 2015 and thereafter every five years as indicated.
