Frequently Asked Questions
1. Are youth/children under the age of 18 allowed to participate?
Youth/children under the age of 18 are allowed to participate ONLY if a parent/guardian will be on site to chaperone them. A parent MUST bring their youth/child that morning and sign a notarized form authorizing their child to participate in the Clinic. The youth/child must remain with their parent/guardian the entire day the Clinic. This is a new policy that will be enforced for the safety of our volunteers under the age of 18.
2. I am not available to work the entire day of the Clinic. May I work only part of the day?
Yes. While we encourage our volunteers to work the entire day of the Clinic, we understand that may not be possible. We welcome any amount of time that you can serve at the Clinic. If you know in advance that you will not be able to serve the entire day of the Clinic, please include that information in the Comments section when completing your registration. If you are serving as a Shepherd and need to leave the Clinic, please see a Coordinator (blue shirt) to ensure that your guest(s) will be assigned another Shepherd. Guests should never be left unattended.
3. Do I have to wear a Touched Twice t-shirt?
While we encourage our volunteers to wear a Touched Twice t-shirt, any plain white or Christ -honoring t-shirt is appropriate. A limited number of Shelby Touched Twice t-shirts will be available for a donation of $7 on Friday evening and Saturday morning.
4. Is there a place at the church where I may store my coat or other personal belongings?
There is no area available to store personal belongings. These should be left in your secured automobile. Should the day of the Clinic be cold, you will be leaving your warm vehicle and getting into a warm van that will take you to the Clinic.
5. Where can I mail a financial donation or deliver food/clothing/hygiene items that I would like to donate?
You may mail a check to Shelby Touched Twice c/o Salem Baptist Church, 8311 Mt. Eden Road, Shelbyville, KY 40065. Donations of food/clothing/hygiene items may be made at the Shelby Baptist Association Office, 120 Henry Clay Street, Shelbyville (call 502/633-1198 for office schedule) or at the Ferrell’s Heating and Air, 6036 Frankfort Road, Shelbyville, Ky. 40065 ( the Old Henry Clay School in Clayvillage) during regular business hours.
6. Where do I park the morning of the Clinic?
Volunteers will be directed to park at the Shelby County Fairgrounds (farmers’ market entrance). Vans will transport all volunteers to and from the Clinic throughout the day. If you do not see a church van with a Shelby Touched Twice sign on it, please call 502-437-9437.
