Interested in Volunteering?

The success of the Savannah Tour of Homes & Gardens is made possible by the generosity of hundreds of volunteers each year.  Their efforts result not only in a wonderful experience for the thousands of visitors who come to Savannah, but also in bringing vital dollars to the preservation projects of Historic Savannah Foundation and the on-going programs of the community outreach efforts of Christ Church Anglican.  Every volunteer should be proud of the fact that they contribute to the well-being and future of our beautiful city.

Listed below are areas in which volunteers are needed before and during the Tour of Homes & Gardens. If you would like to sign up to volunteer or have any questions, feel free to contact Mollie White, Tour Director, at 912-234-8054 or director@savannahtourofhomes.org.

Tour Headquarters and the Gift Shop will be open March 30 – April 3 from 9:00am-5:00pm for ticket sales, ticket pick-up, and shopping. It is located in the Andaz hotel on the 100 Block of West Bryan Street, Savannah, GA 31401 between Barnard Street and Whitaker Street.

 

Volunteer Opportunities
March 22-26, 2017

Flowers - Volunteers work with individual homeowners to select the type and style of floral arrangements, and arrange the flowers the day before the home is on the Tour.

House DocentVolunteers work in the homes and gardens on one or more of the Tour days.  Responsibilities include checking tickets at the entrance and sharing information about the site with visitors in a specific area of the home or garden.

Special Events – Volunteers are needed to work at one or more of the special events during the Tour, primarily to check tickets at the various events.

Street Guides – Volunteers are assigned to strategic locations on the Tour each day to assist visitors as they walk from site to site.  It is very helpful if these volunteers have good knowledge of the downtown area, as questions for general directions, restaurant suggestions, etc. are common.  Maps are provided to each volunteer.

Tour Headquarters – Volunteers needed in Tour Headquarters to assist with two primary functions:

  1. Distributing tickets that have been ordered in advance.
  2. Selling merchandise in the Tour of Homes Gift Shop.

Most volunteer opportunities are scheduled for a shift of 3-4 hours.  All volunteers receive a complimentary, non-transferable ticket to one walking tour.
