Help Us Support the Parish Fundraiser

We’re reaching out to invite you to join us in a
fantastic fundraising opportunity for our parish.

volunteers like you to help with concession stand
Here’s how you can get involved:
 All volunteers must be 18 years-old or older,

campus and sign up for the dates that work best
for you. Be sure to include your t-shirt size and best

Here are some important details to note:
Dress Code: All volunteers are required to wear black
pants and black shoes. A t-shirt will be provided for
you to wear during the event. The t-shirt must be
returned to Kathy Jankun at the end of the
event. Please wear comfortable shoes and dress
appropriately for the weather (it can be cold, hot,
rainy all in the same day).
Time Commitment: Plan for a six to eight-hour
