VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Parking Lot Helpers Needed

Parents, the Audubon PTSA needs your help to keep our children safe at drop-off and pick-up times

This is a very important program. Our parking lot helpers are amazing volunteers who help keep our students safe in the parking lot, while speeding things up for everybody.

Responsibilities include directing traffic, opening car doors, and helping children safely cross the parking lot to the front door of the school. It takes just 20 minutes per week either at morning drop-off (8:35-8:55 AM) or afternoon pick-up times (3:15-3:35 PM Mon, Tue, Thu, Fri or 1:45-2:05 PM Wed). 

Added bonus: if you work for a company like Microsoft, they can match your volunteer time with a donation in cash to Audubon PTSA. You can help your community twice, and it only takes 20 minutes of your time once a week! 

To volunteer, please visit http://audubonptsa.org and click on Volunteer. Once you sign in, click next to go to page 3 and sign up for Parking Lot Helpers or contact our volunteer coordinator Vicky Gee
