We Love Our Volunteers!

If you’ve never volunteered or experienced the fun and camaraderie of a fundraising effort, we’d love to have you join us! 

“He profits most who serves best”

How To Volunteer

While the Winchester Rotary Club works nearly year-round on its annual Rummage Sale to support area charities, the big need for your help is during the set-up and sale days. Next year we start set-up on Tuesday, May 30th and continue through tear-down on Sunday, June 12th. To sign up to volunteer, click the button at the bottom of the page. For more information, click rotaryrummagesale@gmail.com or call Jean Barch at 540-247-8402.


One of the benefits of being a volunteer is the opportunity to shop before the rush of Saturday’s crowds. Eligible volunteers can shop for a brief 2-hour period late on Friday afternoon/early evening.  There is a 10% surcharge to the already low prices since the eligible volunteer will have first choice of the treasures. This is a small way in which we can express our gratitude for your service to the community! 
To be eligible to participate, volunteers must work a minimum of 15 hours (including the sale itself) and will be the ONLY ones allowed in the building during this time. Those who serve less time will NOT be eligible, but we truly appreciate their efforts just the same.

Sign up early to secure the department of your choice. If you have been recruited by a department manager or another volunteer, you may already know where you would like to work. However, if that department is fully staffed, we may ask your help in another area.

Please check in at the Registration Desk on your first day of volunteering. You’ll need to provide basic contact information and at that time you’ll receive a name badge to use for the duration of service.
On your last day, please return the name badge. Be sure to sign in and out each day.

Thank you for considering the donation of your valuable time. And a very special thanks to the dedicated volunteers who return each year to make the Winchester Rotary Club’s Rummage Sale such an overwhelming success for our community!
