Superstar Rain Barrel & Composter Sale Volunteers

Posted on May 12, 2015

Why are our Rain Barrel and Composter Sale volunteers so important? Here's what a sale would likely be without them...

We’d be there all day! The first thing our volunteers do is help unload up to 300 barrels per sale! Even with 10 or more people the truck can take up to an hour to unload. If it were just the Green Calgary staff we’d be getting ready for the sale all morning, and have the backaches to prove it!

We’d have a lot of confused customers. Some of our super volunteers have been volunteering at our sales for years. They are super knowledgeable about the rain barrels and composters we offer. Stationed at our education section, they help every single customer who walks onto a parking lot to ensure they get the barrel that is right for them.

We’d be less helpful. We always have several volunteers to help every customer to their car. It would be quite rude of us to leave the heavy lifting up to you!

We wouldn’t have as much fun! Our volunteers get out of bed bright and early on a Saturday and bring a great attitude to our sales (now that’s a super-power!).

We hope you'll come to one of our Rain Barrel & Composter Sales and get a chance to experience great customer service from our amazing volunteers first hand. Let’s face it, without volunteers our largest fundraisers of the year would not happen. To all of our past and present Green Calgary volunteers, thank-you. We appreciate all that you do!

If you are interested in joining our volunteer team, we have an orientation scheduled for Wednesday, May 20th, from 6:00 – 7:30 pm. Contact Lynn MacCallum for more info or register online to attend.
