TNT Fireworks Fundraiser In Urgent Need Of More Volunteers!!

Its time for us our big TNT Fireworks Fundraiser to support the band activities throughout the upcoming 2014-15 Wolf Band season. The Timberview Band Boosters biggest fundraiser for the year is the TNT Fireworks activities that we participate in with some other MISD band booster organizations. We are in urgent need for students and  adults to sign up to work a volunteer shift for the upcoming fundraiser or the THS Band Boosters will have to pay a $50.00 per shift slot penalty back to TNT operations!

I would like to thank everyone for taking time out of their busy day that has signed-up to come help the Timberview Band fundraising efforts so far, but we need many, many more people to step up and volunteer at least one 4 hour shift. Last year our 4th of July sales at TNT earned the band over $10,000 that we use for band operations throughout the entire band year!

Timberview’s first day at TNT Fireworks is Wednesday, June 25th and we still have adult and student slots we need to fill for every shift. We have been assigned 425 hours available for THS Band and we need to fill all the 4 hour slots and everyone must make sure they show up to work their assigned slot. Volunteer positions included Cashiers (Adults), Floor Managers, Floor Sales, Stockers, Door Greeters, Parking Lot Flaggers and Baggers to help at check-out. None of the positions are hard or require any specialized skills. All we need is You and your willingness to voluteer 4 hours of your time to help the Timberview Band operations in 2014-15.

For our first shift on June 25th we still need 13 more people for this day.

June 29th shifts we need 30 more people.

July 3rd shifts we need 26 more people

July 4th shift we need 37 more people

For every slot we do not fill the THS band WILL pay a $50.00 per slot penalty! If you are available, or know someone who is available please sign up today.

Go to the Timberview Band Sign-up Link by Log-on to Volunteer Spot using this link to select your Timberview Band shift (s):  http://vols.pt/cvqcHH Once you sign in with your e-mail address you will see the calendar with the our open time slots on June 25th & 29th; and July 3rd & 4th dates. Click on the date you can help and select your time slot and the volunteer position you wish to work on that day. If the slot is already filled you will see this on the calendar.

If you are available to sign up for any of these available slots the band would really appreciate it. Don’t forget you can have any family member who is over 13 work and your child will get the credit for the hours.

Volunteers must attend (1) training session for the position(s) they have signed up for.  Managers, Sales, Stockers, Greeters, Flaggers and Baggers will all be trained during the “All Other Positions” times noted above.  Required Safety Training and Testing will also be conducted during each of the times noted.  If someone is unable to attend one of the sessions above, other arrangements may be scheduled with the store operators.  Training/orientation is mandatory, even if you have worked at TNT previously.  Adults signing up for cashier positions must have attended a training session and worked at least (1) shift as a cashier prior to cashiering on July 3rd, or 4th.

There will be a fireworks demonstration on Saturday, June 21, weather permitting, beginning at dusk (around 8:00 or 8:30 pm). This is an opportunity for volunteers to see the products in action so they are able to provide better customer service.  We request that everyone attend if they are able.
