What will I be doing when I volunteer?
Depending on the shift that you choose, you could be doing a variety of jobs. Loading and unloading the truck involves a lot of heavy lifting and walking. Please only chose these shifts if you do not have any physical restrictions. Sale set-up and tear-down activities also require some lifting and lots of walking. If you chose a shift during the sale, you could be helping shoppers find items and them carry them to the HOLD area. You also could be working HOLD or the count area. You will never be asked to work the register if you have not been trained on our register system. The most important thing you will be doing as a volunteer is meeting other moms in your area and having fun!

What should I wear?
Please wear comfortable clothing and shoes as you will be on your feet and doing a lot of walking during your shift. Make sure to wear layers or bring a jacket with you in case the venue is chilly.

What about snacks and drinks?
If you are working several shifts or working during meal times, please feel free to bring a snack and drink with you. Some snacks are provided.

Can I bring my child/children with me?
We strongly encourage that you find someone to keep your children while you are volunteering. We depend on our volunteers to keep our events running smoothly and securely, and volunteering with your child can be distracting. 

What if the shift times that are available to sign up for do not work for me?
We are more than happy to help you find a time that works for you! Please email info@kidstuffsale.com, and we will help create a shift that fits yours and the sale’s needs.

What if I am not able to work my shift(s)?
We are all moms and understand that life happens! Please, if you are not able to be there during your shift, try to find someone to volunteer in your place. This could be your husband, mom, dad, sister, or friend. If you have no one that can come in your place, please contact us, and we will do our best to try to reschedule you for another shift. If you are not able to work any provided make-up shifts, your account will be charged a $25.00 no-show fee for each shift that you miss.
