VOLUNTEER FORMS & INFO

Volunteers are required to turn in the following forms by MAY 10:

Here are some information sheets that will help you understand what is expected during the week:

 

FUNDRAISING

The cost to send one person on this trip is typically around $550.  We rely on the fundraising efforts of ALL participants to raise enough money so ALL can go on this trip.  The MINIMUM individual fundraising effort to go on the trip will be $350. In order to qualify for the “REWARD TRIP” in late July you must raise $800 or more.

STOCK SALE
By far, the most important fundraiser that we do is the annual “Stock Sale”.  People want to give money to a meaningful cause, if you simply take the time to ask, you might be surprised how easy raising money for ASP really is!  Use the resources below or call Rodney (336) 906-3036 or Chris (336) 687-2679 for fundraising ideas!
Friends, family, teachers, etc. can “invest” $10 (or more) in you to go on the ASP trip and by investing in YOU they get:

  • The ability to participate in the Project without having to leave home.  
  • A postcard from the work center sharing what we are doing.
  • An invitation to a banquet in August where they will be able to eat a great meal and hear a report on what happened during the trip.  

Stock Sale Forms: Download these and use them in your fundraising efforts
