Donations: The PTO is always working hard to solicit donations and it takes a lot of time and effort. The more people who can reach out to community businesses, the more the PTO can offer at events such as the Parents Night Out. The PTO also takes donations for supplies for the pancake breakfast and fun fair. This is something that the PTO would like to have volunteers for year round. This type of work is flexible and can be done from home.
Chairperson: Events and fundraisers cannot be held without a chairperson. While the Executive Board has taken these chair positions when necessary or possible, it is critical that volunteers other than Executive Board members coordinate and oversee large events and fundraisers.
