Fundraising It’s extremely important to raise funds throughout the year to support our budget since about a third of our operating costs come from fundraising. All levels of support are significant and add up. Fundraising efforts include:
Direct donations and corporate matching of charitable contributions
Spirit Nights - Avoid cooking and help the band. Local restaurants give back to the band when you patronize their business on scheduled nights. Calendar forthcoming.
The Band Concession Stand at home football games. Please look for our sign as other concession stands benefit other Deep Run groups like Athletics. About a third of your meal cost at our concession benefits the band.
Kroger Card - register with Kroger – shop as you normally would and the band receives a percentage of your purchases!
Flower Sales - Purchase Poinsettias (December) and Geraniums (May) to decorate the stage for concerts, and then take them home to enjoy!
Cookie Dough Sale - in the fall, just in time for holiday baking.

Volunteering The Deep Run Band Boosters is a 100% volunteer supported organization that pulls together for the benefit of our students’ passion for music and marching band. What does it take to support an elite band? It is estimated that it takes about 1,246 total volunteer hours to make Marching Band Season run smoothly. We need you! An added bonus, get to know the kids and parents that make up this great team.
How can you support the volunteer effort? Interested to see what happens at Band Camp? Sign up for a shift and be amazed at what you see!

Take pictures. If you love photography we have a job for you.
If you are a nurse we could use you to help keep our Marching Wildcats in tip-top shape!
Provide a dish for our potluck dinner/celebrations or dessert for receptions held after concerts.
Attend Band Booster Meetings! Consider sharing your time and talents by serving on the Booster Board or as a Committee Chair.
During marching band season, it’s paramount and expected for families to support the band through volunteering. Add a fresh perspective and a new face to the team by helping us spread the volunteer load. Strive to have your family volunteer about 20-30 hours per marching band season. It is lots of fun! If any of these volunteer positions appeal to you please contact Wendy Miller, 1st VP Volunteers, email@example.com or talk to any of the Board Members. Don’t be shy! Volunteers for almost every type of position must fill out an HCPS Volunteer Application. If you haven’t filled out a form this year, please do so and give the form to the Jump Start team or Wendy Miller, 1st VP Volunteers.
