Approximately 1,000 volunteers work together to make the Relief Sale run smoothly each year. There's a job for everyone and we'd love to have you involved!

Current volunteer needs:

  • Catfish fry organizer - Someone to organize the catfish fry.
  • Kids barrel train driver - This person(s) would safely drive the lawnmower with attached barrel train and supervise the loading/unloading of children. Drivers needed on Friday and Saturday.
  • Equipment operator - Someone who can operate a forklift and/or Skytrak to help during setup and take down.
  • Children's activities - Looking for people to lead and help with children's activities at the sale. If you have an idea, let us know! Even a few hours of activities would be helpful.
  • Trash collection - This group circulates the fairgrounds periodically to empty trash cans and put trash in the fairground's truck. Help is especially needed at end of day on Saturday to collect all trash.
  • Auction bid catchers - Looking for a few people to spot bids during the auctions.
  • Sponsorship helper - Someone to assist with organizing sponsorships for the Relief Sale.
  • Children's auction organizer - Someone to organize a children's auction.
  • Have a new idea? Let us know! Most things that happen at the Relief Sale started when someone took the initiative to say, “I would like to do ___.” If you are feeling led, please consider organizing something.

Additional help needed:

  • Set up on Thursday and Friday (Oct. 3 and 4) starting around 8 a.m. Lunch will be provided for volunteers.
  • Tear down/clean up on Saturday (Oct. 5) beginning late morning.
