Volunteers Needed on November 21 st  
Happy Holidays! The weather sure turned quickly on us and the holidays are fast approaching. More than ever in these busy months, we need significantly more cart runners. Cart runners should be able to push full carts and lift up to 20 lbs. as the holiday packs are quite heavy!

This is a wonderful opportunity for middle and high school students to volunteer! Fifth grade and younger are welcome, but need to be accompanied by an adult. Cart runners should come prepared with warm coats, gloves, hats and boots!

We are also looking to have several volunteers available to help EARLY. The truck driver will likely need extra help getting the food and carts off the truck. We are looking for volunteers available approximately 45 minutes before the start of the sale (arrive at 3:15 p.m.) to help the driver ensure the food is protected from the elements, staged appropriately and ready to go by sale time.

Please email Kanitta Rentfrow if you are able to volunteer. Thank you!
