Breaking up your committee into leaders is a fantastic way to delegate responsibilities during your school fundraiser. Below you’ll find a list of various optional volunteer opportunities – these positions are suggestions only, and you’ll likely find that not all of the opportunities mentioned below will be necessary to run your Charleston Wrap® fundraiser – we just like to make sure you’re prepared! Fundraising is about working together to achieve a goal, so rally the troops and have some fun while you’re at it!
Fundraising Materials “Keeper”
Receive and account for all fundraising materials provided by Charleston Wrap®: student packets, parent letters, posters, daily prize incentives, kick-off DVD, collection envelopes, display kit and other promotional materials.
Hold onto the pre-paid FedEx Shipping Label provided by Charleston Wrap®. The label is used to mail your completed order forms to Charleston Wrap® for order-entry once the fundraiser is complete. It’s important to keep the label in a safe place during your fundraiser. Don’t lose it!
Set-up the display kit and hang the posters around school.
Select a few fun and crazy outfits for the Principal and teachers to wear, to help set the tone for your kick-off assembly.
