Annual Tree and Trout Sale 

Tree SaleOur Annual Tree and Trout Sale entails a full day of ‘packing’ and a half day of distribution, for which we need volunteers!

We are looking for help on packing day. Packing day involves going through customer invoices and collecting orders, and ‘packing’ the trees (literally) on a truck ready to go to either sale location. It requires working with others, getting a little dirty (bring gloves!), and making sure the orders are correct.

Sale day involves a variety of tasks, including: greeting customers, directing them to pick up their order,  helping customers get their order to their car, watering the plants, and other random bits to keep everything flowing smoothly.

If you would like more information or would like to sign up, please email: info@winooskinrcd.org.
