During this event, volunteers will inform about eScrip and BYLT and assist with sign ups for shoppers at SPD markets. eScrip is a fundraiser for the land trust that donates up to 3% of a total purchase back to BYLT. eScrip is a free membership for local shoppers to give back to their community- just by grocery shopping! Shoppers can list BYLT as the recipient for eScrip funds, so every time they shop and use their community card, BYLT will benefit by receiving up to 3% of their total grocery bill.
Volunteers will meet at the BYLT office, 12183 Auburn Road, at 10:15 am to pick up tabling supplies and carpool to SPD market in Nevada City, located at 735 Zion Street; the shift will end at 1:00 pm. Volunteers will be the face of BYLT at SPD market and will be encouraging shoppers to sign up for eScrip if they haven’t already, and to use their card if they already support BYLT. Volunteers will earn an Outreach and Events button for this event- if you have earned your volunteer t-shirt, wear it proudly! Dress in comfortable, weather appropriate clothes and bring plenty of water. If you have any questions, please contact Felicia Van Hecke at firstname.lastname@example.org or (530) 272-5994 x 207.
