Be sure to indicate "MVHS Instrumental Music" on the sign-up roster to make sure your hours are counted.


All funds raised will go toward supporting such Instrumental Music needs as student scholarships, performance needs, classroom equipment and music purchases.

In the past, Instrumental Music has earned as much as $3,000 working at the Turkey Trot and Tree Lot. It's fun! And it's a great way to give back to the community!


Instrumental Music  will be compensated at a rate of $18 per volunteer hour. The program with the most volunteer hours across the Tree Lot and Turkey Trot events will
receive a $500 bonus!


Anyone can volunteer. Current and past parents—and band alumni—are welcome. All help is appreciated.
