EXPECTATIONS
Volunteers agree to respect the guidance and decisions of the Code Purple Sussex County Board of Directors.
When difficult questions or situations arise, volunteers should seek assistance and get back to the guest when a suitable answer has been found.
Should a conflict of interest arise, the volunteer will need to remove themselves from serving in any role of Code Purple Sussex County until a reasonable resolution is found.
