Dear School Parents:
I NEED YOUR HELP! With the school year winding down so are many of the volunteer commitments that have been made. One volunteer opportunity which is nearing the end of its scheduled volunteers is our workers for Bingo on Friday evenings. Bingo continues even though school is out for the summer.
Bingo is essential to the financial stability of our school. During this current school year (2016-17) bingo raised nearly $100,000 that went directly into the school budget.
What you may not be aware of is that California law requires that everyone who is associated with the bingo program must be volunteers. We are not able to compensate anyone either directly (pay) or indirectly (tuition assistance). Therefore, we rely on our school families to assist us as volunteers for this important part of our revenue stream.
The bingo program is in need of the following assistance immediately:
- Floor workers to distribute and collect bingo cards and “pull tab” games;
- Three bingo “callers” willing to commit to one Friday evening a month for the next year.
- Three administrative assistants who are willing to learn how to administer the bingo program.
The current schedule of volunteers for the bingo program runs out on June 24, 2017. We need assistance starting immediately.
Please contact the school office to volunteer. Also, remember that during the 2017-18 school year each family is required to complete 32 hours of volunteer service. Hours served at bingo over the summer months can be counted toward this commitment.
Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Edward P. McNulty, Pastor
