The Crème Brulée sale is a huge event and we need many volunteers to help it run smoothly! Volunteers must be aged 16 or older. We can not accommodate children during volunteer shifts so please make other arrangements for them. Volunteers can do a variety of jobs including assisting with checkout, stocking and straightening, setting up or breaking down. There are mornings, mid-day and evening shifts. Volunteers who sign up for three shifts are invited to pre-shop beginning 30 minutes before pre-shopping actually starts (pre-pre-shopping!) The evening before the sale opens to the general public. If you would like to work at the sale, you commit to a 4-hour shift on the day that is convenient for you. If you sign up for back to back shifts (we love this!) Then you will have time to grab a bite to eat. If you have a friend or spouse who would like to volunteer with you (and they are not consigning) their volunteer shifts can count toward your higher percentage! (up to 80%)
For those who would like to help out and enjoy volunteering benefits, but are not available to work at the sale, we have volunteer tasks that will earn you some of these same benefits. These tasks include things like distributing flyers, posting posters or yard signs, and listing the sale information in multiple online and other venues. If you are interested in doing a task for volunteer credit. Email us and we'll talk to you about the different options.
Volunteer tasks: (simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know which you'd like to do)
- Distribute 200 flyers to local kid friendly businesses, daycares, preschools, or moms groups AND post in 3 different social media posts. (available up until 2 weeks prior to the sale)
- For the computer savvy... get our sale posted on 5 different blogs or our event listed in community calendars. Need to be blogs with a large following, not personal blogs.
- Make up your own, do you have contacts in radio, tv, or printed news? If you have a way to get the word out about Creme Brulee, tell us about it!
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT WHEN YOU SIGN UP TO VOLUNTEER YOU ARE FILLING A SPOT THAT NO ONE ELSE CAN TAKE. WE WILL BE COUNTING ON YOU, AND WILL NOT BE ABLE TO CHECK EMAIL DURING THE SALE, IF YOU CANT MAKE YOUR SHIFT YOU NEED TO FIND SOMEONE TO WORK IT FOR YOU. CHANGES IN SHIFTS CAN BE MADE UP UNTIL 2 DAYS PRIOR TO THE SALE.
