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. 26.
