We want to ensure that our organization is taking every precaution to make your experience with us safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.  The Widow’s Pantry is working under the emergency response plan along with state and local CDC guidelines.

To protect participants of the program, we are limiting in-person contact and ask that you wear a mask and maintain social distancing in our classroom setting during the COVID-19 pandemic. Masks are not required during breaks while eating and drinking.

While these efforts and safety measures are in place, the risk of exposure to COVID-19 can exist as it
does in communities.

I understand that The Widow’s Pantry Life Skills Center Program (“the Program”) is a potentially hazardous activity, and I hereby voluntarily assume full and complete responsibility for, and the risk of, any injury or accident that may occur during my participation in the Program or while on premises of the Program or its sponsors (collectively referred to herein as “my participation”).

I understand that during my participation, I will be using public streets and facilities where hazards may exist, and I am aware of and understand the risks that may result. I am also aware that accidents may occur during my participation in the Program that could result in serious injury or death. My participation is voluntary with knowledge of all such risks. In consideration for being permitted to participate in the Program, I hereby agree to assume all risks and to release, hold harmless and covenant not to The Widow’s Pantry, or any sponsors, officials, volunteers, participating clubs, communities, organizations, friends of The Widow’s Pantry, including any instructors, facilitators, medical partner, and all other government or public entities including, but not limited to, Starbucks and affiliated organizations and all of the above-listed entities’ respective directors, officers, agents, employees and members, and all other persons or entities associated with the Event (collectively, “the releasees”), for any claim, loss or liability that I may have arising out of my participation, in the Program but not limited to, personal injury, death or property damage suffered by me or others, whether such losses, liabilities, or claims be caused by falls, contact with and/or the actions of other participants, contact with fixed or non-fixed objects, contact with animals, conditions of the Program premises, negligence or carelessness of the releasees, risks not known to me or not reasonably foreseeable at this time, or otherwise.

I intend by this Waiver and Release of Liability to release in advance, and to waive my rights and to discharge all of the releasees from all claims, losses or liabilities for death, bodily injury or property damage that I may have, or which may hereafter accrue to me, as a result of my participation, even though that liability may arise from negligence or carelessness on the part of the releasees, from dangerous or defective property or equipment owned, maintained or controlled by them or because of their possible liability without fault. I understand and agree that this Waiver and Release of Liability is binding on my heirs, assigns and legal representatives.

I am physically capable of completing the Program. I understand that it is recommended that I discuss my participation with my primary health care provider. If I am aware of or under treatment for any physical infirmity, ailment or illness, I have discussed the Program and my participation with my medical care provider(s) familiar with such condition and he/she has approved my participation. I acknowledge that I and I alone, am solely responsible for my personal health and safety, and the personal property I bring with me in connection with my participation. I will read the Program description and rules for my participation, and I will abide by all rules and regulations established by the Program organizers and personnel. I further agree that my participation is subject to the sole discretion of the Program organizers, and that my participation may be limited for medical, behavior, or other safety-related reasons. In the event of injury, accident or illness during my participation, I consent to receive, and authorize Program organizers, officials, volunteers, participants and spectators to use their discretion to administer, first aid, medical care and/or medical treatment.

In consideration for being permitted to participate in the Program, I hereby agree to adhere to the policies of The Widow’s Pantry Life Skills Center Program.
