Agencies that have been cleared to participate may come to shop on Monday, Wednesday or Friday at 10:30 a.m. ( Please be on time :). ) Choose one day as your regular pickup day, and come weekly on that day. If something happens and you can’t come that day, you may make it up another day that week. It’s not necessary to call if you are substituting your regular day. *Please have a consistent point person shop for your agency.
If you have been called for a special pickup, generally we like to have agencies with big trucks use our docks before 10 a.m. and after 1:00 p.m., and we may assign you a dock time.
The door will be opened at 10:15 for you to wait until we call agencies out to shop. There is hot coffee available while you wait. You may return empty crates, etc., to the warehouse after 10:30.
Agencies are allowed to back up to BAY #3 ONLY while loading their product when available. Bay #3 will be open on a first come first serve basis.Please be gracious and weekly take turns to allow others to have this close parking space.
The white Needs/Haves board on the wall and all flyers and paperwork in the front office are for our participating families only. All agency paperwork is in the rack (where the clipboards are) in the warehouse.
Please use our rolling carts, shopping carts and hand trucks to move your items through the warehouse. Be aware at all times of any equipment that may be utilized around you, and ALWAYS GIVE EQUIPMENT THE RIGHT OF WAY. This is for your safety! Please, no more than two people per agency in the warehouse, and stay together in one group. As you shop, please leave the area orderly. (Put signs back where they belong, remove boxes you empty, close refrigerator doors, etc.) Take only the items that have been designated for agencies. Take only what your agency will use; in other words, for the group of people you have indicated on your survey form. Please weigh your products and write the date and total weight on your personalized pink sheet for the month. Place your sheet – one sheet per month – in alphabetical order in the book. (Use your full agency name and address on the pink sheet.)
Please be finished shopping and leave the parking lot by 12:00 p.m. We have donations arriving at 12:00 p.m.
Danner boots are available to agencies to give to their program participants only. Please use our Agency Request Forms for Danner Boots indicating the first and the last name of the recipient. The Boot Request Form must be completed and signed only by the Person-In-Charge. When you leave these with us, we will fill the approved requests and provide the boots, hopefully the following week. Please leave your completed requests in the agency area rack.
Please make sure we have a current Agency Survey Form (and required attachments) on file. We will update with you once a year.
We do not provide childcare for agencies. Clipboards, shopping sheets, boot request forms, and extra agency guideline sheets are located in the rack by the east warehouse door (next to the shopping carts). Please do not use our “family” forms for boots, etc.
Agencies are not eligible to refer families for participation on this program.
Thanks for helping us to be as organized and efficient as possible!
