Thanks for letting us know. By dropping out in our system as soon as you know, you'll leave space for another volunteer to step in. Log in to your account, click on "My Account" and then scroll down to "Upcoming Opportunities" and click on "Remove Me" next to the project you can't attend. If it's the day of the project, you may also want to e-mail your Volunteer Leader so they know not to expect you. (Replying directly to the reminder e-mail won't work -- look for your Volunteer Leader's contact information in the body of the e-mail.)
