    GIFT WRAPPING AT THE MALL!!!November 25th-December 24th

    The Lincoln East Band has partnered again this year with Gateway Mall to provide courtesy gift wrapping to shoppers (donations will be accepted). Our booth is located across from the Buckle in the middle of the Mall. We are seeking volunteers to help us beginning November 25th and lasting until Christmas Eve.  This is our largest fundraiser of the year, and it takes A LOT of people to pull it off.  Please consider sharing your holiday spirit with us!  Students can earn service hours!!!

     If everyone, students and parents, would sign up for just one shift, we would have every shift covered.  Please consider spending some time with us during the holidays!!

    Sign up sheets for students and adults can be found here:

    Week 2 (December 3-December 9):

    HOW ABOUT SOME GIFT WRAPPING DONATIONS TO PUT YOU IN THE HOLIDAY SPIRIT???

    Between now and December 24th, we will be accepting donations of gift wrap, tape—lots of tape, lots of boxes (in good condition and all sizes), ribbons/bows (we are especially looking for blue and white curling ribbon) and gift tags.

    If you can help us with any of these items, please leave them in the band room—we will have a box set up for the donations.  Please feel free to donate as much and as many times as you want.

    Thanks!!!


    DO YOU HAVE AN IDEA FOR A FUNDRAISER?

    Our fantastic and supportive parents are always full of great ideas!!! If you have an idea for a band fundraiser, please feel free to contact the Booster Executive Board at eastbandexecutiveboard@gmail.com with the information.

    We know, we know—you may say to yourself, “But if I tell you my idea, you’ll make me organize the event.”  Not necessarily—sometimes all it takes is for one person to come up with the idea and another person to run with it.  We’d love to hear what you have in mind!!
