Yes but you need to follow the following steps in order to do so:

  2. Email or written permission from you (can be shown to volunteers from your smart phone)
  3. A printout of your registration email confirmation (or have it on their smart phone to show the volunteers)
    OR a copy of your photo ID

If picking up for friends/family, you can do so for a maximum of three including your own packet.
