Fundraising and Volunteer Opportunities

Fundraising is an important part of every non-profit organization. The
Cordova Bay PAC has a few fundraising opportunities that could always use some extra support.  From a little to a lot, extra hands make less work for everyone. For example we host Purdy’s and Red Barn Fundraisers, the October Hoot and Howl, Bottle Drives and our Spring silent auction. Please contact the CBPAC if you are available to help.

GREEN TEAM

Manages the schools’ recycling program. The goals of the Green Team are:  #1. To reduce the amount of garbage we contribute to the landfill AND #2. To reduce the amount of waste that we recycle. The team needs parent volunteers to help on Fridays.  It is from 1:10 to 1:40, about 1/2 hour and you only have to do 1 shift every 1-2 months.  These volunteers will be helping the kids in the courtyard with sorting the recycling and cleaning the towers.
