Volunteer at The Household Sale



We are in need of volunteers to assist us during our curbside Donation Days on April 1, 2017 from 10:00 am – 5:00 pm.  Donations are being taken and sorted for our spring household sale, which is the largest fundraiser for Ronald McDonald House Charities of Rochester, NY.  Donation days are located at Rochester Tech Park, 789 Elmgrove Road in Building 2 which is on Les Harrison Drive.  This is a great activity for groups of colleagues and friends!

Pizza will be provided around noon. There is also a break room with refrigerators for volunteers to bring their own food as well as get water and coffee.  For questions and to sign up to help please contact Stefanie Szwejbka at stefanies@rmhcrochester.org or 585-442-5437 X2264.

All activities will be outdoors so please dress accordingly


Volunteer Opportunities include:

Before the Sale:

Department Staff:  There are over 25 different departments and each is in need of volunteers to help with setting-up the merchandise & preparing for the Sale.  

Public Donation Days:  During Public Donation Days, the community is encouraged to do their “Spring Cleaning” and donate unused or unwanted items to our Sale. They bring their donations to us and we are in need of volunteers to help with unloading their cars.

During the Sale:

Department Staff:  Assist customers in one of the departments during the Sale.  

Check-Out/Tallying: Customers will bring their purchases to the check-out section and tally-ers will record purchases and give them a tally sheet to bring to the register to pay.

Material Handling: Our Material Handlers help customers to their cars with purchases. This usually involves placing items in a grocery cart and bringing the cart to the curb where the customer can pull up their car to load. Or for those volunteers who are physically inclined to do so, helping with loading furniture into customer’s vehicles.

Security: We have the support of the Police Locust Club to handle the security for the Sale, but are in need of volunteers for certain posts to ensure that customers don’t go out the wrong door or go in areas that are not open to the public.
