Gift Shop

Beyond helping customers locate and purchase the merchandise they need, Gift Shop Volunteers play another important role in many situations: helping guests with Garden questions.  When someone walks into the Gift Shop, they may be looking for directions, or may have a question about Garden events or services.


The Gift Shop is also an important fund-raising unit of the Garden.  By donating your time to the Gift Shop, you support Anderson Japanese Gardens, its staff and its guests.  As a Gift Shop Volunteer, you have the power to brighten a day!
