Arts and Crafts Supply Garage Sale
Our newest and latest annual fundraiser, the ACGS is a two-day garage sale that is a arts and crafts-lovers dream! Volunteers for the ACGS will help us spread the word for the event, as well as sort and organize donations as they come in Donation Day. Volunteers will also help price items as needed, place items on tables/shelves, create signage, do cash/check/credit card sales and aid shoppers. If you like a fast-paced environment that is a little crazy but a lot of fun, this is the perfect job for you!
Gallery and Gallery Shop
We switch out our Gallery approximately each month with new shows and exhibitions. The Gallery and Gallery Shop volunteer will help us hang incoming shows, as well as tear down and packing up of shows going out. This volunteer will also help with re-arranging the Gallery Shop on a semi-weekly basis to help keep it looking fresh and inviting. This job is especially fun during the holiday season, when we go nuts with the greenery, ornaments, ribbon and lights! The Gallery and Gallery Shop position is perfect for the volunteer with a fantastic sense of interior design and décor!
