I'm sure you have been hearing about volunteering at the Thrift Shop. Some of us have work schedules and younger children which make it difficult to to get there. There is another way you can help! Every week, at least 2-3 times, we need the Thrift Shop Drop Box emptied and items delivered to the Pittsboro Thrift Shop. Please sign up if you can help.
Complete instructions are listed below.
Our drop box is located in the Moncure School bus parking lot. It is beside the two dumpsters. The box has a back door with a combination lock on it. Please contact Ginny Barbour at 919-815-2790 or [email protected]windstream.net for the combination, do not give it out to others, and lock it back when you are finished. You have to move the numbers to something other than the combination to get it to lock back.
**Volunteers, please use caution when emptying the drop boxes at night. For safety's sake, please try to empty the box before 6pm. If you must empty in the evening, it is advised you take a second person with you. Please contact local law enforcement if you see anything suspicious or if you need assistance.
A drop box must be completely emptied and true trash should be thrown away. If you are unable to completely empty the drop box, let Ginny Barbour know.
Once donations are picked up, they can be dropped off at the Pittsboro Thrift Shop in the Piggly Wiggly Shopping Center on US 64 East during store hours, 9am to 5pm, Monday through Saturday or on Tuesdays during our work night.
Enter the store through the front door and employees will show you where to put the donations. There are carts that you can use the empty your vehicle. Clothes are placed with clothes, books with books, household items with household items, etc.
After unloading you will need to sign the Moncure book, on the DROP BOX page. If it is not the Tuesday night work night you will need to get the book near the manager's office. From the back door, walk to the first hallway to the right, then walk down that hallway to the next hallway to the right. The books are black and they will be on a shelf to the left. Just ask an employee for the Moncure book if you can't find it. Be sure to sign in on the DROP BOX page. Figure your travel time plus the time it takes to load and unload. The driver earns double time and 1 helper can earn regular time. You can only sign for 1 helper, even if you had more. If the volume requires more than 1 vehicle, both drivers earn time and a half, but there cannot be a helper. The two drivers help each other.
The money we earn from the Thrift Shop has helped fund many things at Moncure School such as middle school athletics, field trips, Field Day, AR Celebration, Technology for the classrooms, computers, books, teaching materials and supplies, etc.
Once you sign up for emptying the drop box, you will receive an email reminder two days before your assigned day.
Remember…at the Thrift Shop…TIME IS MONEY! The more time we work, the more money we earn!
More important, Moncure School appreciates your help!
