Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Blake’s Orchard! We call our program Fundraising in Action — in exchange for your group’s work as volunteers, Blake’s donates funds to your group. This is a valuable exchange for both parties.
Blake’s hires over 500 part-time employees each fall, but we still find it difficult to have enough employees during our peak weekends. Helping hands from volunteer crews make all the difference to our hard-working staff, taking some of the stress out of long weekend days with fresh, eager attitudes and enthusiasm. In exchange, volunteers get a chance to bond with each other and make new friends in a fast-paced, fun work environment, all while fundraising for their cause and helping Blake’s create memories and share life moment’s I with our guests.
Groups of 5 – 15 volunteers per day are recommended. Working assignments will be assigned on the day of volunteering.
Volunteers must be a minimum age of 15 years old.
We are currently looking for volunteers on Saturday’s & Sunday’s starting September 23rd – October 21st
Volunteers are needed from 11:30am – 7:00pm. You can split your volunteers into two shifts — 11:30am to 4pm and 3pm to 7pm. A note about shifts, if you split the shifts into two groups you will need double the amount of volunteers. Some groups choose to volunteer the entire shift while others have volunteers that will do one shift.
Blake’s will donate $10 per hour volunteered per person to your organization.
We may decide we no longer need your group on a certain day due to business demand, and in that event we will do our best to contact you 48-hours in advance, so you can inform your volunteers.
In the event of bad weather, we may also decide to cancel, we will give you 24-hours notice about weather cancellations
Examples of tasks include bagging donuts, washing dishes, filling drinks, serving food and passing out apple bags.
As a volunteer with Blake’s Orchard, we want you to be safe and enjoy your time on the farm. Onsite training will be provided as needed and depending on the location/tasks assigned.
