Volunteers Needed for Big Grab

BLYTHEWOOD/FAIRFIELD (June 9, 2016) – Volunteers are need for 12-15 teams with that many Big Grab volunteer leaders, organizer Dennis Jones told The Voice on Monday.

“We are needing folks who will, with a few friends, help with 7-12 mile sections of the 85-mile route,” Jones said. “They will stake out directional signs on the evening of Thursday, Sept. 8 and pick them up on Sunday, Sept. 11.”

Jones also said that prior to the sale, volunteers are needed to go out and encourage those who live along the routes or have churches or businesses along the route to set up sites to sell their goods on the two sales days.

Other volunteers are needed to solicit sponsorships ($50 per group/church/business) to help defray costs of security, advertising, temporary restrooms, etc. For their $50, sponsors will receive a yard/window sign and their sale site will be listed on the Big Grab website www.biggrabyardsale.com

“Having a sales site listed on the website can be a big boost to that sales site,” Jones said. “People from near and far start analyzing the route early online, looking for ways to maximize their purchases in two short days. We want them to fine plenty of treasures and know how to navigate the route when they get here.”

“The Big Grab is more successful every year,” Jones said. “The bigger it is each year, the more successful it is. But the more work it is as well.”

Those who wish to volunteer, please call Denise at 803-361-2013.
