Volunteer Opportunities!

Give a lot or a little time, depending on your schedule!

  • Chaperone- it is expected one adult family member chaperone at least once during each season. The band needs chaperones at band camp, after school Tuesdays/Thursdays during the season and during competitions. Anytime the band travels together there is a need for adult help! Click to peruse the typical Chaperone Duties
  • Uniform Squad- sizing, cleaning, maintaining, and minimal sewing.  Parents can help out in lots of ways even if they can’t sew!
  • “Pit Crew” is a group of equipment helpers who load/unload the trailers, and move equipment on/off the field when the band travels and performs.  A lot of times this crew also helps build props or fix things, come help out when you can!
  • OOMPA Board/Chairpersons-There is always a need for leadership!  Every year we have graduating families, if you are interested in a position in the future ask to shadow a current board member this year!

 

Fundraising

The ensemble needs lots of money to run, we always need fresh ideas and people to coordinate fundraisers.

While most of the profit goes to the organization, some proceeds go into individual student accounts to help with music related fees. Make sure you participate and share these ongoing options;

    • Amazon– Link your account to Amazon Smile to OOMPA, a small percent of your purchase comes back to; “Oakmont Overlook Music Parents Association Inc”
    • United Way- some corporations allow for United Way charity deductions to come from your paycheck and you can have it send to OOMPA!
