LexFUN! is a 100% volunteer driven organization. All of the work we do is because of the volunteers who give up time in their day to dedicate to the enrichment of our families in Lexington and surrounding communities. Whether you are a high school student looking to collect community service hours, a parent who is looking to connect with others in their community, or a savvy shopper who wants to get into the consignment pre-sale, LexFUN! has multiple ways for you to volunteer.
1. Join the board!
The LexFUN! board consists of over 50 volunteers who perform a variety of tasks both large and small to support the goals of the organization. Our board includes both stay at home and full-time working parents. The rolls of board members are varied and we try to match the interests and talents of volunteers to the needed positions. Board membership runs from May to May, with monthly meetings on the first Wednesday of each month (with the exception of July and August). Although meeting attendance is not mandatory, board members are encouraged to attend for both the social connection to other board members, and to be kept informed about LexFUN! happenings. Board members are asked to volunteer at specific LexFUN! events outside of their roles, but there is no requirement for the number of hours.
2.Consignment sale volunteering!
Our annual consignment sale held in May is our largest fundraiser for our LexFUND! which is our community scholarship and emergency assistance programs. The sale occurs during one weekend in May. Over 200 volunteers are needed to make this event a success during that weekend. Those who wish to be a bit more involved can volunteer for the consignment committee. Committee volunteers meet monthly in the 4 to 5 months leading up to the sale in preparation. Consignment volunteers maybe part of the committee, or more “hands on” during the event for setup, cleanup, or general sales. Volunteers who contribute over 2 ½ hours to the sale, are entitled to shop the pre-scale to help avoid the crowds.
Perfect for high school students, LexFUN! has multiple opportunities for volunteering to earn those needed community service hours. Volunteers can help with event set-up and clean-up and are often tagged to help with some of our more fun tasks such as face-painting and balloon blowing!
