The IMS PTSA provides the necessary volunteers to make this ASB fundraiser successful. 
Counting Day Volunteers (counting money and orders) – If you enjoy the sound of a 10-key machine and the clacking of calculators, then the counting job is for you! Work with other volunteers to help count and tabulate the popcorn and cookie orders received on each collection day.

Vision and Hearing Volunteers Needed!
Nov 19th

No training needed, we provide that at the time. This is a short and sweet way to help the school and students. Please join us, we can’t do it without you!
