Click Here to Volunteer for the Breakdown & Clean-Up Team

Team Role:  This Team is responsible for returning the Sales Area to the way it was before the Sale.  This team's volunteer period begins at 12:30pm and lasts until all tasks are completed, generally around 4:30pm.  Volunteers may sign up to work less than these hours, however,
a 70% commission will be awarded to team volunteers who arrive on time and stay until all tasks are completed.   

Volunteer Responsibilities:  This team s items on tables become sparse, items should be consolidated on one table so that another table may be removed. The team will remove the tables from the Sales Area to a location where they can be safely collapsed and returned to their storage location within AUMC. 

The Break Down & Clean-Up Team Volunteers will break into two teams. 

One team will work with the Sales Floor Team.  Volunteers from both teams will consolidate items on tables so that other tables may be collapsed and removed to their storage location.  Volunteers separate clothing remaining on clothing racks into two groups - those with white tags and those with colored tags.  Items with colored tags are further separated by consignor number.  We ask Consignors to write their consignor number on large cardboard boxes or large plastic storage containers and leave them after they have placed all their items on the Sales Floor during the Friday Drop Off and Merchandise Display period.  Beginning at 1:00 pm, these boxes may be brought out and Consignor's unsold items may be placed within the bins with their consignor number.

The other Break Down & Clean Up Team focuses on removing empty clothing racks and tables and returning them to their proper storage location within the Church.

Between 1:00 and 2:00 pm Consignors collect their unsold merchandise.  

Between 2:00 and 2:30 pm is the $5 Bag Sale.  Any item with a white tag and any item with a colored sales tag that has not been collected by the Consignor is eligible for the $5 Bag Sale.

Between 2:30 and 4:30 pm charities arrive to collect the items they need for those they serve.

Throughout these events, clothing racks are being disassembled, tables folded and returned to their classroom or starage location, and trash is being collected, bagged and taken to dumpsters behind the church.  

Directional signs taped to the doors and walls must be removed  and placed in the master sign folder.  

Sales tags that are found on the floor should be given to one of the sale co-chairs.  

After all the tables, clothing racks and merchandise has been removed the entire Sales Area must be vacuumed and then the Area must be returned to how it was before the sale.  Photos of the entire space are available for this purpose.

Other tasks may be assigned to team members, as needed.

Team members should dress comfortably.  This volunteer opportunity can be physically demanding as we will be moving chairs, tables, clothing racks, etc. throughout the break down period.  The Team will work beginning at 12:30 pm until all tasks are completed, about 4:30 pm.


Participation on this team can earn you a  70% commission.  70% commission will only be awarded to volunteers who arrive on-time at 12:30 pm and stay until all work is completed.
