Parking - Use of the Church Lot

June 2014. Usually, volunteers are able to park in the small lot on the east side of the MOW Office (top floor of the URC building). However, on days when our lot is congested, MOW Volunteer drivers have temporary use of the Church lot 100yds west of our office. This is the Westwood Hills Christian Church.

We need 2 volunteers to make this work. A Church Lot Volunteer and a MOW Lot Volunteer. This will eliminate any extra work for Ellen and Trisha at a critical time for them (between  about 10:15 and about 11:00, when the meals arrive). 

Instructions - Volunteer drivers:

1) If you see the "MOW Lot Full" sign at the entrance to our MOW lot, drive across Hilgard to the Church lot (entry gate on Le Conte shown on map)

2) Our volunteer will open the gate for you with a cardkey.

3) Park and wait until our Church Lot Volunteer asks you to drive back to our MOW Lot for meals pickup. Drivers should exit onto Hilgard (south side of lot). This exit route is requested by the church for safety reasons. 

Instructions - Church Lot Volunteer:

1) Watch our lot until it is nearly full (sometimes around 10:30am).   

2) Call Melanie to ask permission to use the church lot. Put up a "MOW Lot Full" sign at the entrance to our MOW lot.

3) Walk/drive the 150 yds to the Church lot.

4) Get the cardkey from Melanie at the Church Office, and open the gate for our volunteer drivers only.

5) Tell our drivers where to park.

6) When Edgar delivers the meals, our MOW Lot Volunteer will call you and request that our drivers return to the MOW Lot at 2 minute intervals. Drivers should exit onto Hilgard (south side of lot) This exit is requested by the church for safety reasons. 

7) When all drivers have left (probably around 11:00am ) return cardkey to Melanie and walk/drive back to the MOW Office

Instructions - MOW Lot Volunteer:

1) Exchange cell phone #s from the Church Lot Volunteer of the day.

2) After Edgar has delivered the meals, and after our MOW lot is free of congestion, take down the "MOW Lot Full" sign.

3) Call our Church Lot Volunteer and request that our drivers return to the MOW Lot at 2 minute intervals.
