Tiny Toes Rat Rescue of New Mexico is a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal rescue and needs volunteers to help with our holiday fundraiser this coming December at the westside location of Barnes and Noble.


Gift wrap customer purchases (mainly books) for donations. Basic gift wrapping skills are all you need, but the neater and nicer you can gift wrap the larger the donation tends to be. The store provides paper that is easily torn off large dispensers. We provide bows and ribbon and will show you how easy it is to put on. You don't have to know how to make bows.


We and Barnes & Noble must have your solid commitment to work the full shift (3 to 4 hours) you sign up for and arrive 15 minutes prior to the start time of your shift. Barnes and Noble has told us that if our volunteers are late or don't show up then our organization will have all remaining scheduled dates cancelled and given to another organization; and, we'll not be invited back in the future. So, the success of us being able to raise money to replenish our veterinary and support fund literally depends on you be fully committed to this project. Please don't jeopardize our ability to raise money. Thank you.
