Pizza Lunch volunteering

Hello Parent Pizza Lunch Volunteers,
This year we’re trying to run pizza lunch differently. In the past we’ve used primarily parent volunteers and this year we’re delighted that more student volunteers are joining us! With more helpers we should be able to serve the food faster.
What does this mean to you? Parent volunteers will be assigned to a location like always, only this time some locations will have a student volunteer(s) as well. Some volunteers will hand out food, some will cross names off of the list, and some will direct the lines.
Anyone who wants to volunteer please email Thank you for your support.
— The Pizza Lunch Team

QSP Chair and 2 Coordinators – Run one of Bowmore’s best fundraising campaigns! Our annual magazine fundraiser needs a Chair to organize and run this campaign, which normally runs in early October. You will do some planning in June and September to get organized. This is a great opportunity for someone who does not have all year to volunteer, but can make a huge impact on our Council fundraising in a couple of weeks. This campaign usually raises about $10,000! A team of at least 3 people is suggested to make this fundraiser even easier.
