NoHo FUMC Tree Lot

NoHo FUMC Tree Lot 2019

The NoHo FUMC Tree Lot is always looking for some big hearted Tree Elves willing to give up some time to help make a positive impact in our community by spreading Christmas Cheer and raising money for good causes.

We accept volunteers all ages but if you are under 14 then a Parent or Guardian must also volunteer with the person under 14. All volunteer under the age of 18 must have a consent form on file. You can download the form below.

We need the following positions....

Greeter Elf:

  • The Greeter Elf should greet every customer who walks onto the lot gets a friendly Hello.
  • The Greeter Elf should be walking up and down the tree aisles in order to be available to answer any questions (We aren't a hard sale lot. We let the customers walk around and look without pressure.)
  • Once a tree is selected the Greeter Elf makes sure the customer knows where to pay and instructs Tree Handler Elf which tree needs to be carried to the dispatch area.
  • During slow times the Greeter Elf helps sweep the walk, make sure tie down ropes are ready and all trees are tagged

Dispatch Elf:

  • Similar to a Greeter Elf, our dispatch Elf greets every customer with a friendly Hello
  • The Dispatch Elf has an assigned location that he or she should not leave unless has another Elf to cover.
  • The Dispatch Elf after a customer pays makes sure that customer is matched up with a tree loader and confirms the correct tree is being taken
  • During busy times it is the Dispatch Elves responsibility to make sure that the customers are matched up with a loader in the order that they paid so no customers is overlooked and forced to wait longer than necessary

Tree Handler Elf:

  • Primary Job is to Carry Trees
    • Carries a customer's tree from the sales floor spot to the dispatch area
    • When needed will helps Tree Loaders carry Trees to the customer's car and put them on top of cars. Tree Handler Elves do NOT tie the trees down. After helping the loader get the tree on the car they immediately return to the lot.
    • Will carry trees from the back storage onto the lot for sale as space opens up on the lot.
  • During slow times make sure all trees have water

Tree Loader Elf:

  • Are Elves who have been certified by Ken Ellis or Dan Doggett as tie down experts.
  • Primary Job is to carry trees assigned by Dispatch to cars and tie them down for transport
  • During slow times they can help the Tree Handlers fill in the open spots.

Cashier Elf:

  • Only a NoHo FUMC member who has been trained by Dan or Muffett can work this position. Please note training can be done day of if you are willing to come a hour before your shift to complete the training.

Dinner Elf:

  • One of the most important aspects of the mission is making sure the Elves who are giving of their time and backs to sell these Christmas trees are taken care of and that means feed them. We need individuals willing to cook or order take-out for 12 people to be ready at 6:00 pm every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of our selling season.

Scouts / Wesley School / YMCA Youth & Gov't. Elf:

  • NoHo FUMC loves involvement of our local Scout Troop, Wesley School, YMCA Youth & Gov't. If a Scout, Wesley Student, or YMCA Youth is under the age of 14 a parent or guardian must volunteer with the Scout, Student, or Youth
  • Any Volunteer under the age of 18 must have a Parental Consent form on file. You can download the Parental Consent Form just below here on this page.
  • Duties will be assigned to Scout or Student the day of based on their age, strength, and experience.
