BRONCO BARN NOVEMBER AND DECEMBER VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Published: Mon, Nov 6, 2017, 07:07PM CST

The Bronco Barn sells useful and fun items like pens, pencils, other school supplies, and mints during lunchtime on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays. The Barn is located just outside the main gym.

Staffing the Bronco Barn is a fun way to be involved at East and requires only a minimal time commitment. Although only 1 person is required to work the Barn each shift, it is much more fun (and pretty helpful!) to sign up with a friend. There are places for 2 people to sign up each shift, but only one is necessary, if you are comfortable working alone. Thanks for considering how you can help out! Please remember that a background check is required each year for all volunteers. Background Check Online

Volunteer today through the link below and watch for updates throughout the year! Never worked in the Barn before? No worries—we’ll walk you through it! Please click here on Bronco Barn Procedures 2016 more information or contact Jessi Davidson-Irizarry for additional instruction and support.
