Our volunteers make it all possible!
General Description of the type of volunteer opportunities available.
Flier / Advertisement Distribution - Volunteers will be distributing fliers and/or
business cards throughout their local community at predetermined locations to be
credited as having worked a shift. There is a one shift max credit available through
this option. Vehicular transportation and some walking involved. (distribution of
at least 15 fliers = 1 shift)
Set-up - Volunteers will be unloading the trailer, setting up racks, tables, placing
signage and more to get ready for the sale. Can be exciting to see it all come together!
We could really use some strong men here, if any of your hubbies are available.
Check-In Assistance - Volunteers will be assisting with the check-in of all merchandise.
As sellers enter the facility you will be inspecting their items to ensure they adhere
to Just Kids Resale's tagging and condition policies, and verifying Car Seat Checklists
are filled out for any car seat being sold.
Pre-Sale - Volunteers will be completing all last minute preparations to ensure a
smooth Pre-Sale Event. You will be making sure all items are placed in the correct
areas, monitoring entry into the sale to ensure only those with appropriate passes
are allowed admission, assisting shoppers and helping with check-out procedures to
include removal of tags and bagging merchandise.
Public Sale - Volunteers will be helping in one of several capacities:
- Assisting with check-out procedures
- Assisting shoppers (directing them to desired items, placing items on hold, answering
- Helping to maintain the integrity of the sale by looking for misplaced items and
returning them to their proper location
- Helping perform security measures.
Sorting - Volunteers for this shift will be sorting any items remaining, at the conclusion
of the event, by seller number. This shift is for the person who has great attention
to detail (as we have to guarantee items are sorted accurately) and is a fast paced
shift with a good bit of walking and occasional lifting. I guarantee it'll be a fast
3 hours, though, as we are hustling!
Tear Down - Volunteers during this shift will be directing sellers to their unsold
items during "Pick-Up" and helping to restore the rental facility to "as found" condition.
Volunteers will be required to do occasional lifting as tables and chairs have to
be moved and repositioned throughout the room. This is the only shift that promises
to let you go home before your time is up should everything be completed! :)
