How do we THANK our volunteers?


With an event of this size, we require lots of volunteers to help everything run smoothly.

Tasks volunteers are asked to help with may include: Setting up racks, sorting clothes, assisting shoppers, helping with check-out, etc.

  • Volunteers who work a 4-hour shift receive a pass to enter and shop the Volunteer Pre-sale *and* earn an additional 10% (for a total of 70%) of their sold item $’s.
  • Volunteers also receive a pass to enter and shop the 50% off pre-sale one hour before we open to the public.

NOTE: Volunteers that do not fulfill their shift obligations (or send a comparable replacement (a husband, friend, etc) in their place) forfeit their right to participate as a volunteer in the future. Please consider the importance of following through when you commit to a volunteer shift, we are really depending on you! Thanks!

*** Please leave the kids at home when you come to fulfill your shift obligation. We are unable to provide childcare – and you won’t be in a position to supervise them while working.

SUGGESTION: We have many volunteers that team up with a friend: One watches the kids while the other works a shift – and vice versa. It works out great and they each earn a pass so they can have fun shopping the presale together!

A small number of “Super Volunteers” work a minimum of SIX 4-hour shifts and shop before the Volunteer Presale starts so they can staff the Volunteer Presale (Super Volunteer program by invitation only).


There are a limited number of volunteer “barter” opportunities available.

Barter options count as ONE 4-hour volunteer shift.

MEALS + SNACKS: Sign-up for meals + snacks delivery thru the volunteer menu – choose your day/time. Please bring meals + snacks in containers that will not need to be returned to you.

1. Bring a meal to the sale location (meal to feed 10 + drinks + paper products/utensils required) 2. Bring a snack to the sale location (snack includes drinks (water, soda, etc) (for 24) + snacks (for 24) + paper products if required). Snacks are to be dropped off any time during scheduled inventory “drop off” hours.

NOTE: In order to get credit for this volunteer option, you *must* sign-in when you drop off your meal or snack
