Volunteers are eligible to shop the Preview Sale before we open to the public. We rely completely on volunteers to staff the sale so that the sale’s proceeds can go to local and global non-profit organizations.
You can help in a variety of ways: set-up, running the sale, nursery, breakdown, and more. No matter what you choose, your time will contribute to the success of the sale. The volunteer registration system closes on Monday, August 12, at 11:59pm, so don’t miss out.
Please check your confirmation email for important logistical information about your shift. If you have any questions, please email our Volunteer Coordinator.
We are extremely grateful for your service!
If you complete a work shift during the sale, you are eligible to shop our Preview Sale starting at 5:15pm on Thursday, August 15, 2019.
If you work any shift PLUS an incentive shift (denoted by three asterisks *** on the sign-up page), you are eligible to enter at 4:30pm on Thursday, August 15.
We provide a free Volunteer’s Nursery for infants through preschool-age children during the following times (to coincide with your shift): Thursday, from 7:45am until 12pm; Friday, from 8am until 12: 30pm. You must make a reservation to use the Volunteer’s Nursery. To reserve childcare, please email us.
When you are shopping the Preview Sale or Public Sale, there is a nominal charge for the shopper’s nursery of $5 per hour, per child ($10 per hour family maximum), and children are accepted through elementary age. Cash or check is preferred for nursery payment. Email us with questions.
Remember, no children or strollers are allowed on the sales floor during the Preview Sale or the Public Sale before 12pm on Friday, except babies worn in slings or carriers.
