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.

There are a variety of ways that you or your company can get involved, with different levels of commitment.
