Upcoming Volunteer Opportunities

Hello Charger Families!

PTSA is holding our Spring Goodwill Drive this Saturday, April 7, from 10am to 4pm in the front parking lot at Wilcox.  Proceeds to go toward the Senior Send-Off Celebration in June.  

You can help us in two ways:

1.  VOLUNTEER (pretty please!) for a 2-hour shift.  Sign up here: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0e4ba9aa28a6fd0-goodwill2  All you need to do is make sure people are dropping off appropriate items and help them unload items.  A Goodwill worker will load the truck.  

Seniors, we especially encourage you to sign up for a shift, but any and all students wanting community service hours are welcome to sign up! Grab a friend to join in the fun with you!   

 

2. DONATE your used household goods, including E-waste!  Acceptable items include vacuums, printers, VCRs, and microwaves! Please note, no item over 50 pounds, wires, or power cords will be accepted.

Thank you for your support!

Volunteer Host Families Wanted!

Volunteer Host Families Wanted!

Since 1989, more than 2900 FLAG host families have welcomed international students into their homes! Over 60% of those students have later visited or been visited by their host family! 

Hosting an exchange student is the sharing of cultures between an international youngster and your family: customs, friendship, personalities, even the food and the holiday traditions - it's a growth and learning experience for all involved. The choice to open one’s home to an exchange student is a life changing experience not only for host parents but siblings as well.  You can request a student from a wide variety of countries or with a specific background or interest.  (a boy who loves soccer from Brazil, a girl from Japan who likes to hike and go camping, etc.)  Or, you can read student profiles and then choose a student who you think would be a good match for your family

I hosted a student who attended Wilcox High School two years ago. So, I can answer all your questions of what it is like and what paperwork is involved.
