Dear Green Gifts Fair Volunteers,
Thank you so much for all of your hard work on the 2018 Green Gifts Fair. We would not be able to host this great event without you, let alone make it such a success! Our jobs are made much easier (and a lot more fun!) when we have such dedicated and enthusiastic volunteers, so again THANK YOU for coming to support us and the Green Gifts Fair! I hope you all had fun as well and that you want to come back next year!
There were 80 people outside the Do It Green! team who volunteered more than 250 hours! That’s more than we’ve ever had! This year, volunteers…
…set up nearly 100 tables and over 150 chairs (this was the first year we didn’t have the rental company do set up)
…woke up early (hopefully had some coffee) and helped more than 85 vendors and demos find their locations and set up
…greeted nearly 6,000 visitors to the 2018 Green Gifts Fair
…helped plant 288 basil seedlings for people to take home
…made sure we were a low-waste event by staffing the recycling and composting centers
…made sure the fair ran smoothly by checking in on vendors and volunteers or by helping with demos
…helped with the silent auction, which raised over $4,000!
…helped take down the fair, including the scramble to get all the chairs and tables to the rental company in time (we did it!)
Thank you all so much again! Learn more about volunteering with Do it Green! Minnesota.
