    Current Volunteer Needs - WE NEED YOU!

    Grants Researcher - The PTSA is looking for a volunteer to research grant opportunities to pass along to our grant writer. This is a work from home volunteer opportunity that involves both online research and contacting businesses or individuals for more information about funding opportunities for B.F. Day.

    Fremont Solstice Parade Parking Volunteers - A team of volunteers are needed to help with parade parking on the B.F. Day playground and collect parking fees during the Fremont Solstice Parade on the morning of Saturday, June 22, 2019. This is a great fundraiser for the school and all volunteers will still be able to march in the parade.

    Recycle Batteries - The School also needs someone to recycle batteries appropriately about once every two months – see Carrie in the office if you can help out.
