You will pick up your t-shirt on your first work shift or shop night. T-shirts are $8 each for all volunteers unless this is your first time. First timers, your shirts are free!
During receiving, when checking in at the computer, you MUST let the person know that you are a KCC volunteer. As a worker, you absolutely MUST have your items turned in by Thursday, Aug 26 at 3pm! If you bring your items this day YOU will be responsible for putting your items out at that time. NO LEAVING your items to put out another day.
We have a water cooler instead of plastic water bottles. You will always find some chocolates/snacks in our break room! If you are working all day, you are welcome to bring snacks/sack lunch to nibble on. Although there is no set "lunch break", you are able to take a few minutes to sit, relax and get some nourishment! For those who work ALL DAY on one of our three Saturday's, KCC will provide lunch for you. Please do not ask to leave and go get you something to eat.
Please understand that there are NO lockers in the break room and it is best for you not to bring anything valuable in with you. There are lots of people in and out of the room and things get knocked over, moved, etc and sometimes things get misplaced!
After logging in, a box pops up that says Welcome to your homepage. To the left, click on volunteer to work. This will take you to the online shift sign up program. Follow directions. *Deadline for signing up, canceling, or changing your volunteer work shifts online is Wednesday, Aug 18. If you miss the deadline please TEXT Katie.
Requirements for KCC Volunteers
To be eligible to choose a shift and shop your night, volunteers must participate as a consignor ~ selling 15 or more of children’s or household items.
If, after choosing a shift, a volunteer realizes they can no longer consign, they need to unregister as a consignor & volunteer before the deadline (see below). If a volunteer does not cancel their shift before the deadline has passed, they are obligated to fulfill their shift or choose one of the options below.
Find a suitable replacement on their behalf. If the substitute fulfills the shift, the volunteer will still receive their full earnings percentage and will not receive any penalties toward choosing a shift at future events.
Volunteers can go on the KCC website to cancel their shift or switch to a different shift until the deadline on Wednesday, Aug 18th 2021 at noon.
Volunteers must be age 16 or older.
Volunteers may not bring children with them to their shift. Occasional exceptions have been made for nursing infants during certain shifts, but the appeal must be made and approved by Jennifer or Katie BEFORE signing up for a shift.
Kids Clothes Connection needs every assigned volunteer in order to run the sale smoothly and efficiently. In an effort to ensure the quality of the sale by retaining a sufficient number of workers, KCC requires that volunteers fulfill their assigned 4, 12, 16, or 24 hour shift. ***After we close the online volunteer schedule, which is NOON on Wednesday, Aug 18th, you may ONLY change your shift TWO TIMES. After that, you are obligated to work your scheduled shifts. This is to prevent inconsistencies among our volunteers, and improve reliability so that KCC is not short handed.
Call/Text Katie, ASAP, at 770-364-1779 to switch to a different, available shift. Shift availability may be limited. If a volunteer calls Katie, reschedules to an available shift and fulfills that entire shift, they will receive their full earnings percentage and will not receive any penalties toward joining the KCC volunteer team at future events.
Certain volunteer shift positions are very popular ~ if you would like to sign up, don’t wait! Most All of the available shifts are typically full before receiving begins. By choosing a shift, you are holding a valuable spot & opportunity. For this reason, in the event a volunteer does not fulfill that shift they’ve held, or send a suitable replacement, Kids Clothes Connection will deduct a 30% penalty from the volunteer’s earnings check, and they will be placed on a Prohibited Worker List.
Consignors who have not fulfilled a shift in the past and were placed on the Prohibited Worker List may call Jennifer at 334-524-0606 and find out how to be reinstated as a potential volunteer.
Volunteers understand that they are choosing to exchange their 4, 12, 16, or 24 hour worker shift times helping at the Kids Clothes Connection Sale solely for the privilege of shopping during their designated Shop Night.
Volunteers MUST be on time and fulfill their entire shift in order to reap the benefits of joining the KCC Volunteer Team.
