UHS PTO Used Book Sale - Volunteers Needed

This year's Annual UHS PTO Used Book Sale will be held on Friday, February 23rd and Saturday, February 24th.  The Used Book Sale is a community event and everyone is welcome. If you do not have a student in the High School, your help would still be appreciated as we prepare for our largest fundraiser of the year.  There are volunteer shifts scheduled throughout the weeks leading up to the day of the sale.  A variety of day and evening volunteer hours are offered to make helping with this event easy and fun for everyone. No prior experience is necessary!  This is a great way to meet new people, connect with friends, or spend time while waiting for your student's practice to end vs driving home and back in the cold. Every little bit of help is vital to the success of the sale.

Annual Neighborhood Book Collection Volunteers:  Saturday, January 20th:  Student drivers are needed for the collection of books throughout the UCFSD community. 

Student drivers please sign-up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080f4ca8ae2f4-2018 

Additionally,student and adult volunteers are requested on the 20th to help set-up, unload cars, sort, and price the books. Please sign-up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080f4ca8ae2f4-20182

2018 Used Book Sale Preparation and Sale Volunteers: January 20th thru  February 23th /24th.  Many student and adult volunteers will be needed during the weeks that lead up to the actual event and for set up and sale on February 23rd and 24th. Please volunteer for a shift or two or three starting on January 20th and going through February 23rd/24th by clicking on the following SignUp Genius link:  http://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080f4ca8ae2f4-20182
