Nathan Hale Music: Volunteers needed for Barnes & Noble Performance 12/8/18

Dear Nathan Hale Music Families,

As you know, our musicians and singers will be performing in a "Books and Performance" Fundraiser for the Nathan Hale Music Program at Barnes & Noble on Saturday, December 8th from 11 am to 4 pm. Fundraising pays for much-needed sheet music, instruments and instrument repair, expert clinicians, festival fees, and scholarships for students who cannot pay the full cost for field trips and special events.

To make this event a success, we’ll need some volunteer support from you! It’s a really fun day, and volunteering can easily be combined with listening to your child perform and doing some holiday shopping!

Here are some of the ways you can support the music program on December 8:

  • Help transport large instruments and equipment. We’ll need approximately 5 vehicles. There’s a 10 am shift, meeting at school and driving to Barnes & Noble, and a 4 pm shift, meeting at the store and driving back to school.
  • Staff the gift-wrapping table. We get to keep 100% of the donations made for gift wrapping! We’ll need two wrappers throughout the day, working in one-hour shifts from 10 am to 4 pm.
  • Be a greeter. We’ll need someone to greet shoppers and let them know about the fundraiser and distribute the voucher code. This will be broken down into one-hour shifts as well.

A SignUp Genius request is being sent to make it easy to select a volunteer role. In case you don’t receive it, here’s a link:

On the day of the performance, shoppers can use our voucher number 12443644, or just tell the cashier that they want their purchase to benefit Nathan Hale Music.

Students should arrive no later than 15 minutes before their ensemble’s performance time, below, and wear concert black.
