It takes over 100 students, parents and community members to make our mulch sale possible; so, we love our volunteers!

Delivery Trucks & Drivers (15-25)

Drivers are not required to lift bags of mulch!  All you need is a vehicle that can transport mulch and helpers and the ability to COUNT.  We provide you with young strong teenagers to help with the heavy lifting.  You only need to have a pickup, flatbed, box truck or open trailer with a load capacity of at least 1200 lbs.  NO ENCLOSED PASSENGER VEHICLES. 

Drivers are responsible for ensuring their vehicles are loaded with the right number of bags and that their delivery workers unload the right number of bags for each customer.

 

We ask that each driver commit to being available from 7am-noon on delivery day but any amount of time you can haul mulch is greatly appreciated!

Box Truck Drivers (2-4)

Drivers are not required to lift bags of mulch!  If you have experience driving a box truck and can spare 2-4 hours between 6AM and Noon on the sale date, please reach out to our Coordinators. We don't always rent box trucks so you may not see the position listed on our Sign Up Genius page.  We would need people willing to pick up the truck before the sale, drop it off after the sale, and drive it during the sale.

This is not a published volunteer position. If you have experience operating a forklift, we'd like to add you to the short list of forklift volunteers we call directly to schedule.
