Two Easy (and Free) Ways to Help the Band Financially This Summer
Summer Vacations Savings
Now that summer vacation is in full swing, there are a few ways you can continue to support the band:
Download and Start Using the Benefit App
This is a great way to earn money for the band with NO OUT OF POCKET to you!
You’ll need to link a bank account to the app, which takes a couple of days to fully implement. Once you’ve verified two small transactions in your account, you’ll be ready to start using the app to pay for your everyday purchases at stores like: Target, Amazon, Walmart, Home Depot, and various restaurants. In most cases, you can use the app in person and online. These retailers donate a portion of the purchase price back to the band.
The image to the left is just one band member’s contribution since October last year. Those purchases add up! Imagine if just 10 of us used the app regularly — that would be over $2,000 of FREE money. Imagine if 30 families did the same? We could be looking at some serious and much needed financial help for our program — with no out of pocket for any of us.
It’s really easy, too. Learn more here.
Save Your Recyclables
We turn trash into cash with several recycling days throughout the school year. Please save your clean plastic water bottles and aluminum cans. It’s helpful if you separate them, but not necessary.
With each recycling event, the band earns several hundred dollars, so it’s definitely worth our collective efforts.
Start saving your bottles and cans now.
Please mark your calendar with our football and competition dates for fall 2017. Note that Championships fall on the Saturday before Thanksgiving break. Please plan accordingly.
You can also subscribe to our calendar via this iCal link. The process varies by calendar, but is often File > New Calendar Subscription > insert iCal link. Please set it up to refresh daily (or even hourly) to ensure your calendar is synced with fresh data.
Here’s How You Can Help Keep the Music Alive
Find out how to contribute financially to the band. We have an ongoing need and a large monthly budget. Without the financial help of our band families, our programs would not be possible.
We could use your help volunteering, too. From uniform fittings and football games to bus chaperones, concessions help, pit crews, awards night, recycling, and much, much, more, our help wanted list is long and varied.
Fundraising is an amazing way to support the band financially, and it doesn’t necessarily mean opening up your own wallet. We have a variety of fundraisers that can make a big difference — but participation is essential.
Who can you approach in your network about sponsoring the band? Maybe it’s an employer or perhaps a local business. The business community wants to support local students, but WE have to seek THEM.

I look forward to serving the students, parents, campus and community of Temecula through music education. I am thrilled to give back to the community that helped me find and pursue my passion.
My goal is to provide support and opportunities that allow the students of TVHS to find and pursue their passions as well.
