It seems one of us is always running errands, especially as we get closer to an event. Picking up items from in kind donors, supplies for event day(s) or just random things which need to be done for our clients.
We all know the thing about errands, is you can plan your route out all you want, but somehow it never turns out as simple as you expected. Maybe the donor forgets to leave the donation for you, or the store only has half the amount of volunteer water you need to pick up, forcing you to yet another store and let’s not even mention trying to get into a Costco parking lot smoothly.
Errands definitely are not our favourite part of events, but they are one of those "other duties as assigned” we just can’t shake…. Well unless we recruit our retired family members to help!
