Volunteers Needed For Our Annual Bagged Lunch Program:

 

CLICK HERE TO VOLUNTEER

 

We are in need of parent volunteers to come in and assist the kids as they decorate brown paper bags and fill them with lunch items. Parents will help the kids move through the process and keep things moving smoothly. This is a fun and easy event that the kids truly love! Please consider volunteering to come in and get a chance to see our great kids at work! They really are proud to help families in our community!

Each year, the kids work hard, saving and counting their pennies during the Penny Drive! These pennies are then used to buy supplies for our Bagged Lunch Program which donates much needed food to many families in our area. This year, our Bagged Lunch Program will benefit Blessings in a Backpack. Click here to read more about this wonderful organization!

Jennifer Gottesman is the current Husky Handler and often in the suit, but she’s leaving Hillendale next year when her 5th grader moves on to Patton.  She is looking for a group of willing volunteers to take turns as the husky when available/needed.  NO EXPERIENCE NEEDED.  IT IS SO FUN!!!!!!  Jen will let you know everything you need to know for your turn as the husky!

Help Needed for the Peak of the Book Sale!! We Need Adults!! 
 

We are VERY short adult volunteers for the 6:30-9:00PM shift next Friday night, February 23rd, and also for the Bag Sale/Tear Down shifts on Saturday, February 24th.  If you haven’t seen how busy Friday night gets, please watch the time lapse video at our website http://uhsbooksale.org on the “Our Event” tab on our website.   We need adults to help manage the peak of the sale – we have less than 10 volunteers for this shift currently.  We are also short adults during the bag sale and tear down on Saturday.  *Please help us!*  If you cannot stay the whole shift, come for an hour – just note it on the sign-up genius.  There are a lot of logistics to manage during the sale, so if you’re coming to help, please sign up so that we can plan for you!  This is the largest fundraiser for the High School and it takes a lot of hands to make it successful.  Please consider joining us!

 

Here is the adult signup genius link:  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080f4ca8ae2f4-20182

 

Students can still sign up to volunteer and hours count as community service hours.  Sign-up sheets are located on a table in the cafeteria right outside of the LGI doors.

WANTED: Books and Volunteers for the UHS Booksale

Book donations for the annual Book Sale got off to a great start – the community again was very generous with their donations during our drive on January 20th.  We have received some absolutely wonderful books such as a copy of  NASA The Journey Continues signed by 13 of the NASA astronauts and other signed special items from famous authors and celebrities in addition to the most recent New York Times Bestsellers.  But, after our initial intake, donations slowed down and we are encouraging people to donate their gently used books.  Books can be donated during school hours at any of the UCFSD schools or the 24/7 dropoff box towards the rear of Unionville High School from now through February 20th

The sale is Friday Feb 23 from 4pm-9pm and Sat 9AM-2PM followed by our $10 bag sale from 2:30 to 5PM. 

We are also still looking for volunteers within the school and community to help with the sale set up and event.  If you are interested in signing up, please go to our sign-up genius at:

http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080f4ca8ae2f4-20182

If you have additional questions, please send them to our email: uhsbooksale@gmail.com or go to our website at uhsbooksale.org

We look forward to seeing you at the Sale!
