About the Preview Sale

The Preview Sale is our way of thanking Volunteers for all their hard work during Pass It On Kidsignment Sale. Volunteers who give 8 or more hours of time during Sale Week are invited to shop before the public on Thursday evening (6:30PM – 8:30PM). There’s also the 1/2 Price Preview Sale for Volunteers beginning at 7AM on Saturday.

We at Pass It On adore kids. There wouldn’t be a sale without kids. But, please note that we cannot allow anyone to bring their baby or child(ren) with them during their volunteer shifts!

Levels of Volunteer Commitment

 

Note about Volunteer Jobs

We encourage you to let us know the areas of the sale you prefer. We try to accommodate everyone, but we can’t guarantee any particular job. Please remember that part of the ministry of volunteering is helping where needed and remaining flexible as schedule changes occur and demands of the sale change daily.

Creative Problem Solving

Having trouble finding 8 hours to volunteer? Want to gift a new mom an invite to the Preview Sale? Form a team and volunteer chunks of time over the week and donate those hours to one person who can shop the Preview Sale. This division of labor makes volunteering a breeze! Just be sure to note on your Volunteer Registration who is working which shift!  Others take advantage of our Rush Hours Bonus and work Friday morning during the initial rush of the sale!
