Winter Break: Holidays Spirit is Volunteer Spirit!!
Please consider contributing your time and generosity to support RMS Students and Staff. There are so many ways You Can Help!
Parking Fundraiser NEXT WEEK!!
We are in danger of cancelling these opportunities if we cannot fully staff the Parking Fundraiser shifts.
Due to the low numbers of volunteer sign-ups, the RooFriends Parking Fundraiser Committee altered this event in order to maximize the efforts of the few who have signed-up … but we still need to fully staff the shifts that remain in order to operate this event smoothly, safely … and PROFITABLY!! Please sign-up for at least one 3-hour shift next week Dec 26 -30.
Alterations to the Winter Break 2022 Parking Fundraiser include:
- Dec 31 cancelled.
- Consolidating all efforts to just one parking location, the Gravel Lot on Zoo Drive. On-campus parking (blacktop, etc) will be closed. IF the Gravel Lot fills-up, onsite volunteers may decide to open on-campus parking to extend fundraising opportunities.
- One shift instead of two shifts per day. Remaining shift: 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM.
