Plant Sale 2020

Plant Sale Volunteers

We appreciate your interest in volunteering for the Big Brothers Big Sisters Annual Plant Sale. The Sale is a great community service project or company team activity as well as an avenue to meet new people, spend time with your Little and learn or share your knowledge about flowers. Gardening expertise or a green thumb is not required and during the weekend retail hours, we will have the pleasure of working with the Illinois and Iowa Extension of Master Gardeners onsite to help answer questions, provide good gardening tips, and assist customers with their selections.

ILLINOIS: American Bank & Trust - 3730 18th Avenue. Rock Island, IL 61201

IOWA: Northwest Bank & Trust - 100 E. Kimberly Rd. Davenport, IA 52806

Please find the available shift times listed below with how many volunteers are needed per shift. We do strive to maintain a balance between too few and too many volunteers so people stay busy and enjoy their experience with us. For quick reference, here is a broad overview of what's involved:

Site Preparation Day (April 29 & April 30th):

Morning shift: involves unloading racks of flowers and baskets then sorting them by color and variety.

Afternoon shift: involves pulling flowers to fill hundreds of pre-orders received.

Retail Sales (April 30 -May 10): involves greeting and assisting customers with their purchase, carrying and helping load flowers into vehicles, watering and dead-heading flowers plus keeping the site organized and clean.

 

*Bending and carrying flats of flowers and hanging baskets are involved.

*Comfortable footwear is recommended for all shifts - volunteers will be on their feet for long periods of time.

*All operations will run rain or shine.

*All children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by an adult during their volunteer time.

*If you should need to change your volunteer time after you sign up, please return to this website to make the change. Also if your unable to stay for the full shift time please note that in the comment box when signing up.
