NorthStar Neighbor Volunteer Waiver

Notice:  This release and waiver of liability affects rights you have relating to your volunteer activities with Northstar Neighbor.

I desire to volunteer through Northstar Neighbor. I understand that Northstar Neighbor will connect me with a person who needs assistance of various kinds. After receiving a connection from Northstar Neighbor, I may communicate with one or more recipient in need of assistance, travel to and from the homes of recipient and provide recipient with goods and services requested by recipient under terms agreed to with recipient (the “Activities”).  Northstar Neighbor is offering me the chance to connect with someone who may need assistance, and I understand and agree that, apart from connecting me to the recipient, Northstar Neighbor has no responsibility for the Activities and makes no promises, guarantees, or representations regarding the nature of the Activities or my participation in the Activities. 

I understand and agree that I assume all risks associated with my participation in the Activities, and that Northstar Neighbor is not responsible for my safety or security or the security of any of my personal effects.  I also specifically assume the risk of injury or harm in the Activities and release Northstar Neighbor from all liability for injury, illness, death or property damage resulting from participation in the Activities.  This assumption of risk includes but is not limited to the risk of contracting any communicable disease, illness, or sickness during the course of the Activities including but not limited to the novel coronavirus known as COVID-19. Separately, and in consideration for the opportunity to volunteer with Northstar Neighbor, I hereby release Northstar Neighbor, its board members, officers, and representatives, from any and all liability, equitable claims, or legal claims I might have relating to my volunteer activity or participation in the Activities.  I expressly agree that this Release is intended to be as broad and inclusive as permitted by the laws of the state of Minnesota and this Release shall be governed by and interpreted in accordance with the laws of the state of Minnesota. I agree that in the event that any clause or provisions of this Release is deemed invalid, the enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Release shall not be affected.
