Set up: If you would like to help set up Friday, please show up in the cafeteria at 5:30pm. Many hands make light work.

Volunteers: If you have not already signed up for a volunteer shift at the Winter Show next Saturday, there are many spots still available. This event is one of the largest fundraisers benefiting the entire band program, and cannot be successful without your help. We appreciate your time and commitment to this program, and we will be raffling off movie passes and other items from local businesses as a token of our appreciation for the volunteers. One adult shift per band student is expected to be completed.

Adults Volunteers, please sign up here:

Ongoing Fundraisers

Did you know that you can support the Milford Public School Band Boosters, just by purchasing your groceries? The boosters rely heavily on fundraising to offset the cost of marching band, drum line, winter guard, and jazz band.

Milford Band Boosters are part of the Kroger Community Rewards program! Kroger Community Rewards makes fundraising easy by donating to local organizations based on the shopping you do every day....at no cost to you! Once you link your Kroger Plus card to Milford Band Boosters, all you have to do is shop at Kroger and swipe your Plus Card! This program brought over $3,000 to our organization last year.

Please visit www.krogercommunityrewards.com to enroll. Our organization is Milford Band Boosters, number QU736.
Raise funds for Milford Bands while you shop!
Shopping online at Amazon, go to https://smile.amazon.com/ch/23-7374130 and the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the purchase price to the Milford Public School Band Boosters, for eligible purchases. This is an easy way to help earn money to help lower band fees, while shopping on Amazon. Thanks for your support!
Contact Jason Long (sponsorship.milfordband@gmail.com) to learn more, or to refer a business.
