The Pioneers once again have the opportunity to work at this FUN event and do a little fundraising & shopping at the same time. We will be working in 3 different jobs. One is selling shopping bags to participants as they enter (does require standing & walking to sell to people standing in line to get in), we get 50% of the sales! The second is working in the Parcel Check booth (similar to a coat check but shoppers leave their purchases with us while they continue shopping, that way they don’t have to carry heavy bags around), we get 100% of the donations for this service (2 types of activity levels, seated position and walking/lifting positions, not really heavy items). And lastly we provide a gift wrap service (so if you LOVE to wrap presents this one is for you!) and we get 100% of the donations for this as well.

We may also be asked to do some other tasks like handstamps as people exit or collecting raffle entries, last year they asked if we would be able to do that this year but they haven’t confirmed that.

Last year we made almost $1500 at this event so this is a GREAT fundraiser for us but we can’t do it without volunteers.

A little bit about the festival:

The Harvest Festivals are the largest indoor art and craft shows on the West Coast, featuring over 24,000 American handmade items. Hundreds of vendors will exhibit and sell jewelry, pottery, original art, toys, photography, textiles, bath and body products, clothing, home décor and more. Plus, select specialty food vendors will be providing food samples of delicious dips, fudges, olive oils, scones, marinades, jams and more, right in time for Thanksgiving.

If you can volunteer please click on the Sign Up Genius link above or contact Sarah Solis at [email protected] or 916-834-2342. I have to give them all the volunteers names & shifts by Nov 10th so please let me know before then.

You will have to pay for parking ($10), that is managed by Cal Expo, not the Harvest Festival, so they don’t have any way to comp that, but we can purchase discount parking passes ($5) on Thurs evening so if you’d like these (1 for each day) please let me know so we can coordinate getting money from you and then getting the parking passes to you before your shift. 

Thank you in advance for supporting the Pioneers!
