Volunteer Opportunities – 2019/2020 School Year

Bethlehem Walk Fundraising:  Our Bethlehem Walk Christmas production is almost entirely funded by Hope Lutheran Church and School, with generous volunteer support from our church membership and school parent community.  In an effort to offset production costs, a bake sale will take place after school on Friday, December 6th at the PoCo Campus.  This is a great way for you to purchase a plate of assorted Christmas baking for holiday celebrations.  For those of you missing Fun Food, here’s your opportunity to enjoy some treats! Your time and your baked goods count towards volunteer hours.To contribute items to the bake sale or to help facilitate the sale, please sign up at the following link:  Bethlehem Walk Bake Sale 

Bethlehem Walk Props: A number of props are necessary to enhance the various scenes presented in our Bethlehem Walk production.  The requested items are listed in the following link.  Please sign in the appropriate spot for the item you are able to lend to the production and please confirm its suitability with the teacher in charge before leaving at the school.  All items must be clearly labeled to be returned.  Props Needed – Bethlehem Walk

Water cooler

Do you have a water bottle dispensing unit that you no longer use, taking up space in your home or garage?  If so, we have a solution for you!  The water dispenser in the Pitt Meadows staff room is reaching the end of its life and needs replacement due to broken dispensing taps.  A new dispenser is needed, designed to hold a 5-gallon bottle.  If you have a dispenser you’d like to donate, please contact Mrs. Khun Khun at akhunkhun@hopelcs.ca to arrange delivery.
