Milford High School

9th Annual Mattress Sale Fundraiser!!
Saturday, February 16

The Milford High School Band will be sponsoring Milford’s ninth annual mattress sale on Saturday, February 16. This has been a very successful fundraiser at Milford the past several years. We are very excited to sponsor this event here at Milford High School once again this year.
Brand new, name brand, top quality mattress sets with full manufacturer warranties. Much higher quality for price than a retail store! All sizes, price ranges, delivery and financing will be available. Floor models will be on display in the Milford High School cafeteria from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, February 16. If you, or anyone you know is in the market for a new mattress…check out this fundraiser!! If you need a new mattress before this sale or have questions, please contact Ultimate Fundraising Solutions at [email protected].
The 2019 Supporter Discount Cards were given out last week! Cards are $10 each can be used over and over thru December 2019 and will pay for itself after just a few uses! Money is due by March 4, but more cards can be sold after the first $30 is sent in.

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!
