Volunteer at Floods of Duds
Give. This is what makes our sale different than other area sales. We give in three ways:
- Volunteers give their time. Our sale is 100% run by volunteers and it could not happen without them.
- In exchange for their volunteer hours, we pay a portion of our proceeds to the Youth Ministry at HFUMC to support their expenses for mission trips.
- We encourage consignors to donate items that do not sell to area charities, including Samaritan Center, Cumberland Crisis Pregnancy Center, and local schools.
The more volunteer shifts you work, the better percentage of sales you receive, the lower your fees, and the earlier you get to shop the Presale. Part or all of prepaid consignor fees will be refunded with consignor checks for consignors who work one or more 3-hour Volunteer shifts.
|Number of Shifts||% of Sales||Fees||Shop Early Benefits (This Sale / Next Sale)|
|Three or More||80/20||$0||5:30 pm / 5:00 pm|
|One or Two||75/25||$6||6:00 pm / N/A|
|Zero (Consign Only)||70/30||$12||7:00 pm / N/A|
The 6-9 pm shift on Friday, August 25th, 2023, and all shifts on Saturday, August 26th, 2023 will count double towards your volunteer credit.
At Floods of Duds, we normally offer free childcare while you are working your volunteer shift. However, due to a shortage of childcare workers, childcare will only be offered on a limited basis. If you require childcare during your volunteer shift, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to make a request. Childcare is for volunteers only. We cannot currently offer childcare for check-in appointments or shopping at any time.
Family Volunteer Benefits
Family members who volunteer are allowed to transfer his/her volunteer hours to another family member. Doing so waives any right to a presale pass. Please note that 7th-12th graders can volunteer for service hours only; their hours will not count toward consignor benefits.
