Band Camp is just around the corner, and as you prepare for the summer season, Tara Schlafer and Holly Kubek wanted to contact you regarding the food needs for the summer.
Like last year, we are going to ask for donations per family. Please bring what you feel you are able to donate, to the first day of band camp. We hope there is something on this list that will work out for everyone; time wise and money wise.
Your donations of these staple items help to offset the cost of food and allow Tara and I to do some special/extra things with the food menu. Your donations may also help offset our "onsite @ FVL/band camp" food costs so that when the band goes out on tour we maybe able to offer more options.
Volunteers are also needed! If you feel you cannot donate items, please consider donating your time. We have many volunteers needs from kitchen to chaperone to snack service to clean up to truck driving, all to support our kids and the tremendous effort they put into the LVW Season. We cannot do this program without your donations of time and/or items. THANK YOU!
There is a volunteer web calendar posted on the LVW Website... it will be your one stop volunteer spot. The kitchen crew needs are noted there. Please note, start times are just an estimate, if you can make any time over the meal, please sign up and then let us know your exact arrival time. You can also contact Holly via e-mail... firstname.lastname@example.org or via phone.... 920-574-7721 (cell).
Thank you to those folks who have already contacted me! We are off to a great start!
We did just learned that our milk/dairy supplier, who has generously donated milk, cheese, sour cream, etc. for the past many number of years, was unable to donate this season. Their fund raising season last year, did not go as well, due to the economy. So we are looking for any leads on possible reduced dairy products or donations. If you know of a farmer or other contacts that might be able to help us out... please let me know! We appreciate any leads you may have.
Here is the list of items.... bring 1 or bring as many as you feel you can:
any kind of candy bars regular or small sizes: especially Snickers, Hershey plain chocolate, Reeces Peanut Butter Cups, but we'll eat anything!
chocolate chips peanut butter chips butterscotch chips
m & m
salad dressings - the kids really liked having a large variety last year, the Olive Garden dressings were a big hit! :)
ice cream toppings of any kind
cereals of any kind - again, the kids liked the variety and some of their own home favorites
rice crispies & more marshmallows
any flavor of jello
any flavor of pudding, boxes or large #10 cans
all flavors of powdered Gatorade
any types of powdered lemon ade ( no sugar free items please)
whole turkeys... cooked and deboned or just bring to FVL and we'll bake and debone them... at least 5 turkeys, but we can always use more
dried fruits, craisin, blueberries, cherries the kids loved this on the salad bar and in oatmeal
bacon - this can be expensive... kids love the bacon and even just a 1lb. donation would be appreciated, if 20 people donated 1 lb. we would have 20Lbs!!
real bacon bits
watermelons, grapes, or strawberries (if you happen to go pick strawberries, please pick a flat for LVW- mmmm strawberry shortcake! )
We would also gladly accept gift cards to Woodman's, Sam's Club, Wal-Mart, Festival or other.
