Volunteers at Charleston Repeats are very important to us. If you like to be busy, this is for you! It is fast paced and requires organizational skills, people skills, and excellent communication skills. We do not have "sit down" jobs .... we are busy, busy, busy!
please email any volunteer questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We make volunteering easy and fun, however, it requires HUSTLE, HUSTLE, HUSTLE! If you like to be super busy and organize, this is your calling! Duties include: inspecting clothing, organizing games and toys, helping shoppers, and restocking racks …. typical “mommy” duties! Or, volunteer your hubby and you receive the benefits! If you are an expectant mother, duties will be light.
As a volunteer, remember:
- Dress comfortably!
- Eat before you come or bring some light snacks.
- Leave your kiddos with a friend or sitter as children may not work shifts with you nor is child care provided.
- Leave all personal belongings at home or in your locked vehicle. We cannot guarantee a space place for your items.
- Bring a smile and prepare to have fun!
- Please arrive 15 minutes before your shift to sign in and receive your assignment.
- Remember to check in and out with the volunteer coordinator to make sure you get credit for coming!
- YOU MAY NOT STASH ITEMS
- YOU MAY NOT HOLD ITEMS TO PURCHASE AT A LATER DATE
- Volunteers may be declined at the discretion of management.
If you need to cancel your shift, you may do so up to 14 days in advance with no penalty. As mothers, we know that emergencies can happen, but remember that we are all in this together! It takes all of us to coordinate a great sale. So, if an emergency arises, it will be your responsibility to find a replacement or sign up for an alternate shift. Failure to not show up for a shift will result in your inability to be a volunteer in the future, and therefore your inability to shop early and get a portion of your consignor fee back. We highly depend on our volunteers to be reliable. Remember… volunteers make for a great sale and a great sale puts money in your pocket!
Thank you for volunteering!!!! We hope that you have a great time and get the best bargains of the Sale!
