Volunteering outside of the Sale:
There are several opportunities to volunteer that do not involve set hours or working at the sale. We need people to sign up to bring food, we need husbands to build racks or displays, and we need runners to run errands. The food sign-up happens the week before registration and more information is listed below. Runners or builders request will be sent out on an “as needed” basis either by email or on our Facebook page.
One of our most popular volunteer options is the ability to bring the committee (who practically live at the church that week) food. Here is the information for that:
Provide a Meal or Snack Volunteer – We are looking for people to provide meals for the workers who have to be there all day. There needs to be enough food to feed 15 hungry workers. In order to ensure that the workers have meals that everyone will like and are good reheated hours later, we will be asking for specific meals from specific restaurants. This enables us to know exactly what we are getting and when. Meal and snack providers will be allowed to shop at 3:30 pm on Wednesday. These meal and snack slots are very popular, so this is what we do…..If you are interested in a meal or snack “shift”, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the word Meal as the subject line and we will announce more details and who was drawn via email. Thanks!
