We can never say this enough: Half-Pint is fabulous because YOU make it fabulous by being your already fabulous selves. This community that you’ve all helped create is an amazing resource for area families. Thank you for all that you do!
As you are registering, please take the time to read the comments on the right side of the form. When you click on a section, you’ll see little boxes appear. These give important notes about the shifts and what you might be able to expect. Little stars next to shifts indicate that there is some heavy lifting involved, so beware those of you with bad backs or with babies in carriers. Also note that there aren’t any shifts where children are able to join you on the shift (unless they are being carried). Thank for understanding!
Because of the new space and increased consignors/number of items, we’ve added more shifts around the board. We hope you can find something that will work for you!
Finally, note that, like last sale, we have some special opportunities, as well as some variable shifts.
Scanning and Data Entry: These are three hours shifts (like the rest of our shifts) and we like to schedule them during the same times as the other shifts, beginning Basically, we provide scanners, computers, and a 10key, and you provide fast fingers and the ability to sit for three hours and look at lots of tags of paper.
Flyering: The ever popular flyering! Basically, we need your Uber help getting out the word about Half-Pint. We love that shoppers and consignors alike make sure that their friends, coworkers and families know about Half-Pint. Some people, though, really go out of their way to post and distribute, and we know the amount of time it takes. ** If you would like to flyer as your volunteer opportunity, you’ll want to mark that box at the end of the registration form, and send us your list of places you’d like to post. We often have people who send us a list that duplicates someone else’s efforts, so be sure to get your list in early and wait for our approval to start. You must commit to posting the flyer (or handing out the information) to at least 15 places with a minimum of 5 families. If one of the places you agree to post will not post the flyer (it happens), then you’ll need to find an additional place.
The Best Part of Volunteering: The Volunteer PreSale
And to make the Volunteer Sale even a bit sweeter, we lengthened the Volunteer PreSale to THREE full hours. (Just a reminder, that consignors and volunteers can shop both presales, but Must check-out in between. Also, volunteers may not bring an extra person with them – say, a partner or fellow co-parent or grandparent – to the sale; so if you want your cute hubby or wife to come with you while you shop, have them sign up for a shift as well! We’ve had lots of mother/daughter and partner teams!)
We’ve got over 200 shifts to fill to make this a smooth event – Ok, So go for it! And thanks!
