Lunch Bunch Volunteers

If you are looking for a great way to volunteer in the school and really get to know the kids in their element
(eating!), then Lunch Bunch is for you!
 We are in great need of volunteers to work 45 minute shifts to help
the kids during lunch. This gives our wonderful teachers their much-needed break time during lunch and is
part of the reason why Vanderlyn is a great school for teachers...parent commitment!

Volunteers can sign up at their convenience for whatever fits best with their schedule. Volunteer weekly,
monthly, or even be on our list as a substitute only!  
If you are interested, please contact Angela Thayer or 
Charlotte Wiseman or sign up for your preferred shifts now on SignUp Genius.

Thanks for helping Vanderlyn and the kids in this important area of service!

Corporate Matching­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­

Did you know many corporations have matching gift programs for their employees, retirees, and board members that will double or, in some cases, triple the portion of a donation that is tax deductible.

Please contact your employer to determine if they will match your financial gift and to learn about the guidelines for obtaining matching funds for Vanderlyn.  The Vanderlyn PTO will assist you in providing the details necessary for completing the matching gift paperwork.
