Volunteers needed for our biggest fundraiser of the year!

ComFest_2019-logo-e15540829105261-236x300

Hello from the Hubbard Mastery Elementary School PTO!

 

COMFEST is just around the corner(like it is a short block from the Hubbard Mastery School parking lot).  This makes our location very valuable to patrons of the event. Even when the weather has cost the festival an entire day, we still make over $5K, charging $20 a car.  It is no exaggeration to say that this parking lot is a financial game changer for our PTO. Due to the changes in parking restrictions around the Goodale Park(cars can only pay to park in a given zone for 3 hours), I think our parking lot stands to fair well.  Your 3 hour volunteer time slot is so valuable to the opportunities we can provide our school children, and really needed:)

What to expect:  

  • The volunteer mini-tent at the parking lot will have a cooler with ice and some waters, sunblock,  we will provide the PTO Square card reader, fanny pack for the ‘bank’ and a map that easily details how we direct the cars to park on the playground, and a stack of parking passes to give patrons for their dashboards.
  • First shift will need to place a couple signs out at the corners of the school blocks, just to let cars know where we are located.  Last shift will need to collect signs before closing up for the night.
  • We have the 4 volunteer system, because we have 2 people staff the entrance and 2 people assist with directing cars on the playground.  
  • You will want to bring something to sit on, from a towel to a camp chair.  
  • We will need to have one volunteer sync the Square chip reader to their mobile phone via Bluetooth–if you are familiar with this process, please note that when you volunteer.
  • The most active time of the parking lot is roughly 11-2.   

 

We are requesting that you provide us an email with your volunteer sign up this year, so we can send you up-to-date information (like last year when they cancelled COMFEST Friday, at 1:30 due to inclement weather), we will also send you a confirmation letter with the all the details you need for your shift.  Finally, we will be holding 4 parking spots for the volunteers during their shift. If we have an available spot for you to move your car into, when your shift is over, and you would like to attend the festival, please consider it yours in appreciation for your time and support.

Sincerely,

Your Hubbard Mastery PTO!

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED FOR SHORT SHIFTS AT THE CRAFTIN’ OUTLAWS FAIR THIS SATURDAY, NOV. 10TH, FOR THE KIDS ONLY SPACE! from 4-7pm

Craftin OutlawsThis Saturday afternoon, November 10th!!

Craftin’ Outlaws is holding it’s EPIC alternative craft fair this Saturday, at the Columbus Convention Center.  So much handmade quality, so much creativity– it’s a fabulous way to mix it up this weekend.  SOOO, community of The Hub–we need some volunteers to assist with the Craft Crawl, an event at the fair,  only for kids 10 and under.  Craft Crawl starts at 4pm and runs to 7 pm (close), and is located in the lobby of Battelle Grand on Saturday November 10th!

Details:

Craft Crawl:  Starting at 4PM, Outlaws 10 and under can enjoy shopping from handmade items between $5 – $10! Vendors and sponsors are donating handmade items and kids are offered a space to shop for themselves or for a loved one. This is only for kids 10 and younger! Proceeds raised are going to our non-profit partners. Items are limited and there’s a limit to 1 item per child. 

Reminiscent of the old Lazarus  ‘Secret Santa Shop’ (that I loved to use as a child) parents/guardians are not allowed in the Craft Crawl.  Hence we will need one volunteer posted outside the room letting kids in when others leave and one volunteer  inside the room accepting money from the child. Keeping around 2 kids in the room at a time.  

 To Volunteer:

We are looking for 4 – 6 volunteers, to participate for a one-hour long shift(if you are interested in longer- great).  Shifts available:

1st, 4pm-5pm

2nd, 5pm-6pm

3rd, 6pm-7pm

An officer of the PTO will be there to help get volunteers set up.   

Craft Crawl is located in the lobby of Battelle Grand, near the Craftin’ Outlaws Headquarters.

If you are able to help please email Tami Wise at twise@equivita.com, and include the time you would be available.  Thank you THANK YOU!

Volunteers needed for Summer Fundraisers!

Each year, Hubbard PTO provides financial support for students and teachers, including our Lantern Fest, Field Day, field trips, teacher supplies, and other essentials.   Most of our budget comes from our parking fundraisers over the summer, which rely on volunteer support.

Please sign up for one or more volunteer shifts to help support our students over the coming year:  https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080949aaae29a7fb6-summer
