How volunteering works
In exchange for committing to a 4 hour shift, volunteers get to shop before the public. You do NOT have to sell to volunteer!
Volunteer registration opens: August 31st at 9 am
Volunteers' presale: September 20th 5:30-9:00 pm
Who can volunteer?
Anyone who wants to shop early and have fun! Whether you're a parent, grandparent, daycare provider, or anyone else who has a need to shop for children's items, we'd love to have you! If you have a specific concern about volunteering, such as a physical limitation, please don't hesitate to contact us. We will be happy to work with you to find an accommodation if possible.
We are unable to allow any children to accompany you to your volunteer shift due to safety reasons. If you're a nursing mother who needs to feed or pump for your child, we are happy to allow you to have your child brought to you to nurse, or to take a break to pump. Please let us know ahead of time if you'll need to do this as there are some shifts that are more suited to this need. If you'd like to bring a child over the age of 12 to help at the sale, please contact us before the sale so we may determine if that is an appropriate time for your child to be at the sale.
A full list of available positions can be found when you register as a volunteer. This list gives you an idea of the sorts of spot we need to fill for each sale.
