We love our volunteers! The Treasure Chest Family Sale would be impossible to facilitate without volunteers.
Because we value our volunteers so highly, you can expect to be treated like a true friend. We start off by having each volunteer sign in and grab a nametag; each volunteer can choose a spot to place their personal items (and treasures they find along the way that they want to buy!); duties are assigned; refreshments are available; friendships are born!
Why volunteer with us?

To volunteer at our sale, please log in to your consignor page and choose “Volunteer”. Shifts are available in 3-hour increments. Email us if you would like to create your own shift. Consider bringing a friend, spouse, or teenager with you for your shift; their hours count for you! We especially need help on Wednesday, September 5 and Tuesday, September 11. Those are great times to send your teenagers or husbands out to help!
Volunteer duties may be sorting, inspecting, assisting with check-out, straightening up, directing traffic, and setting up/breaking down, among other things.
Other ways to earn Volunteer Hours are to assist us with placing signs around town (10 signs = 1 shift!), placing postcards in neighborhood newspaper boxes (300 cards = 1 shift!; limited to 2 shifts per volunteer), obtaining complimentary advertising in either print, radio, or television markets (= 2 shifts!), and providing snacks/lunch for our volunteers (limited to those who are unable to work due physical limitations).
Remember, you don’t have to complete those volunteer shifts alone; bring along a friend or sister or spouse to help! We especially need “man-power” on set-up and break-down days. Send those husbands and teenage sons in to help and YOU get the credit hours!
Does your teenager need volunteer hours for school? Here is a great opportunity!
