Consignment Sale volunteers

This sale happens because of dozens of terrific volunteers, who do everything from bring snacks and paper bags to assemble racks, sort toys, run cash registers, match lost tags with their items, and help distract tired babies!

Most of our volunteers are moms and grandmas, although we do get great help from some dads, especially during set-up and break-down.

Volunteer shifts are available from lunchtime Wednesday through Saturday evening, which means there’s something available for every schedule.

Volunteers who sign up to work a three-hour shift are admitted to a Volunteer Preview Sale, 4 - 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 17.

If you are interested in volunteering, register with us here.

We also need volunteers to bring snacks and refreshments to our sale volunteers. Sign up here.

Drop off

Sort and bundle your items by size and gender. For instance, group all of your girls 2T together, 3T together, etc. Use rubber bands to bundle the hangers together at the top for each size. Please do not bundle different sizes together using the same rubber band. This helps ensure your items will be stocked prior to the sale’s opening.

Drop-off is scheduled for Wednesday, Sept. 16, 7:30 - 9 p.m. and Thursday, Sept. 17, 9:30 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. at Mullin Life Center, on the Greene Street side of the church. If you are late, your items will be put to the side & set out if/when we have time.

Please be prepared to stop briefly at the curb to unload. Volunteers will be available to assist you. Once you have unloaded, you may park in a designated area and return to move your items inside.

Please do not park in the semicircle in front of the Life Center entrance. This is our preschool’s carpool lane. Park in the Greene Street parking lot or on Fisher Park Circle. You may use the parking deck on Fisher Avenue behind the Shetler Building.

As you enter the door, you will check-in and review your address to make sure we send your check to the right place. Also make sure to sign a policies statement (checks will not be mailed without this signed statement) and pick up your consignor preview sale voucher.
