By clicking the Submit button you agree to these terms of service:
I, the Volunteer, desire to give of my time, abilities and resources to others in my community, without compensation, as part of Beaches Vineyard’s Community Cares program (“volunteer activities”). This means I have asked to be matched with a participant who has requested the type(s) of help I might be able to provide, and if matched I will communicate with the participant and provide help as I am able. Examples of requests from participants in the Community Cares program include help with activities like yard work, cleaning, basic home repair, and moving of furniture or other things.
I acknowledge and agree that my volunteering for the Community Cares program is entirely voluntary. I have not been asked or required to volunteer in this program as a condition of receipt of any benefit from Beaches Vineyard or anyone else.
I understand that my volunteer activities may include, but are not limited to, travel to and from participants’ homes or other work sites, manual labor, strenuous physical activity, and use of yard tools, power tools and other equipment. I also understand there is some inherent risk in performing these and other volunteer activities, including, but not limited to, the risk of accident, personal injury, and damage to my real and personal property. I also understand my volunteer activities may include work that may be hazardous to me, including, but not limited to: exposure to lead, asbestos, mold and/or other toxins, which may cause or worsen certain illnesses, especially if I do not wear protective gear, am exposed for extended periods of time or have a pre-existing immune system deficiency.
I hereby freely and voluntarily assume all risk associated with my volunteer activities.
I understand that the fear of liability would deter Beaches Vineyard from offering the Community Cares program. Therefore, in consideration of, and in order to be allowed to volunteer in, the Community Cares program, I, the undersigned Volunteer, do hereby waive, release, forever discharge and hold harmless the Released Parties and each of their heirs, successors and assigns of and from any and all liability, claims, demands, costs and charges for any injuries, damages or losses of any kind whatsoever, whether arising from tort, contract or otherwise, whether to persons or property, whether economic or non-economic, which I or my heirs, assigns or legal representatives may have or which may hereafter accrue as result of, arising from, or relating in any way to my volunteering in the Community Cares program, including, but not limited to personal injury or damage to real or personal property, whether caused wholly or in part by the simple negligence, fault or other misconduct of the Released Parties or of participants or other volunteers, other than the Released Parties’ intentional wrongdoing or grossly negligent conduct.
I agree that this Release is intended to be as broad and comprehensive as permitted by applicable law.
I agree that this Release and my volunteering in the Community Cares program shall be governed by the laws of the State of Florida, and that any and all legal actions arising from or relating in any way to this Release or my volunteering in the Community Cares program shall and must be adjudicated exclusively in the appropriate state court of Duval County, Florida. I further agree that if any provision of this Release, or its application to any person or circumstance, is ruled invalid or unenforceable, then neither that provision’s application to any other person or circumstance nor any other provision shall be affected, and every other provision of this Release shall remain valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
I have read this entire Release, consisting of two (2) pages, and I understand it. By signing below, I voluntarily agree to each of the provisions above. It is my intent to, and I do hereby, bind not only myself, but also my heirs, assigns and legal representatives.
