KidSafe Collaborative Community Yard Sale

Want a fun activity for you and your mentee this summer? Why not think about volunteering at the KidSafe Collaborative Community Yard Sale? This fun event (and terrific shopping bonanza) truly could not happen without the support of volunteers. There’s a task for everyone, made to suit every interest. Volunteers help with donation pick-ups, inventory management (receiving, sorting and merchandising donations) and provide excellent customer service as part of a team…and much, much more! Not to mention, it is appropriate for community service hours and graduation credit. If you want to learn more information about the kind of help they need and available shifts check out SignUp. And if you have any questions, send an email at [email protected] and KidSafe Collaborative can help find you a spot.
