MHS Band Fundraising Committees

The following committees are always looking for new volunteers.  For more information about any of these various other
fundraisers are being considered for the year and more information will follow about those specific opportunities when they
are decided.  New fundraising ideas can always be suggested to the board at a Band Backers Meeting.  Certain fundraisers
are meant to support individual student Charms accounts and others are meant to raise necessary funds for the Band
Backers organization to offset the costs of running the band program that are not covered by student fees.  If you would like
to help with any of our fundraising efforts, contact a board member.  Specific requests for volunteers will come at various
