#1 Where would we be without our wonderful volunteers?
If you haven't already started your recruitment program for 2020 it's time to get planning as terms 4 and 1 are ideal times to recruit volunteers from the new families who are joining your school community. So make the most of any opportunities that come up to connect with them.
Attend and hand out a flyer at parent information sessions and prep orientation events; ask the school to include this flyer in school book packs, in the school newsletter and on their Facebook page. Host a morning or afternoon tea at the tuckshop, this is a great way for parents to not only meet you, but to meet other members of the school community. Your existing volunteers are fantastic ambassadors for the tuckshop, ask them to spread the work or to bring along a friend... for lots more inspiration visit the Volunteer section of Tuckshop Toolbox.
