This is at the top of the list because it’s the easiest. Find your Safeway card, then visit eScrip.com and register your number with Pullman High School. Done! Every time you use your Safeway card, a portion of your sale is donated to PHS. It doesn’t add anything to your bill. It’s pure goodness of your heart. (webmaster’s note: I did this, and nothing bad has happened. I recommend it)
You know you want one. This is the second easiest, which is why it is the second from the top. Visit fieldhouse.com and buy some authentic Greyhound gear. The price is reasonable and the gear is first class. Buy a t-shirt for yourself and a hoodie for your student. (webmaster’s note: I did this, as a test. Got a first-class sweatshirt. Double sewn hems, and embroidered Greyhound logo. Recommended)
Look for an envelope in the mail in August. In there is the information on sports passes. A sports pass gets you into every Greyhound event at home. Every football game, volleyball game, basketball game, baseball, wrestling, you name it. The price of a sports pass is a substantial discount from the price of single-game tickets and considerably more convenient.
This is a fun one. While you are at the game, visit the concessions booth. The booth is staffed by student groups. Meet a student, have a little nibble, and support PHS.
Fresh trees, nicely shaped, and the best price anywhere. On top of that, a student (or hapless teacher) will trim the trunk and tie your tree to the top of your car. Amazing. The sale starts after Thanksgiving and runs until the trees are gone, usually the week before Christmas.
This is the biggie. Local businesses donate wonderful gifts to the annual Booster auction. In the first week of December, the Boosters hold a raucous dinner and fun auction. You buy a ticket, have dinner, bid if you want to, and enjoy an adult evening with your friends.
Maybe this should be at the top of the list. Would you like to test drive a new Ford? Which one? Maybe a decent sedan because it’s time to get out of the minivan, or reliable car for the new driver in the family. Or maybe you just want to drive something fun like the Mustang? It’s free! Ford donates $20 to the Boosters for each test drive. Jess Ford assembles everything at the school and you show up and jump in.
Wait, maybe this should be at the top. No money required and not much time depending on the project. Contact one of us or come to the next meeting. You can work concessions one evening, or help behind the scenes if you prefer. (webmaster's note: here's a tip I learned from an outgoing member: start now, when your kids are underclassmen. Then you can rest on your laurels when your kids are juniors and seniors)
