Be Part of USBands

Volunteer to help build smiling faces

2 volunteersUSBands needs a few wonderful folks who can assist us as on-site merchandise managers at regional, state and national championships.

Smiling faces and laughing faces are what we see every week at USbands shows, and that is what USBands is all about.

We all know the benefits of music in the schools and the fellowship that comes from being part of the band. It gives kids a place to belong, to excel, to  know accomplishment. We know that what the kids who perform at halftime, need their own game, because that game builds as much character as any other sport.

As the financial pressures  mount on schools, part of our job is to try to maintain reasonable costs for bands to compete, and we do that by selling merchandise to offset some of the costs of stadiums, judges, travel and administration.

We need YOU to help us this year. Be a part of the USBands team as an on-site merchandise manager! We provide the training, the tools, the plan and the merchandise for a great event. We cover your expenses, plus a small stipend. You supply the leadership to help other volunteers be successful in the effort.  

We promise to make it fun with prizes to the crews who sell the most merchandise per band each weekend. All we ask is that you dedicate a few hours for in-person training and work on site at two or more Saturday shows this fall, helping us to help these kids be all that they can be.

Note that our greatest need is on Nov. 3, when we host seven state championships in one day — so, please put that date on your calendar if you can.

Can you help? If so, or for more information, give me a call: Bill Speakman, 610-821-0345, ext. 126
