Kroger Cards

KROGER CARDS: Christy Earl has Kroger Cards available for purchase for $5.00 each.  Kroger Cards are a great and easy way to fundraise Fair Share accounts by adding money to be spent on gas and groceries to the card. The return is 4¢ per dollar. Please bring cash if possible to pay for them; Christy will be at most band functions.  She can be reached at earlfamily391@gmail.com  or call her at 739-3026

2014 Band Camp Water Donation

BAND CAMP DONATION: A huge THANK YOU to Hip Donelson and Thorntons on Lebanon Pike in Donelson for donating 160 cases of bottled water to the McGavock Band!  We are grateful to the Donelson community for their continued support of the band.

School Fundraiser Target

SCHOOL FUNDRAISER: Target Stores is holding a fundraiser where schools can earn gift cards for clicks/votes! For every 25 “clicks” the school gets a $25 gift card for supplies. It’s a great way to help the school earn money and doesn’t cost you anything! And don’t forget: if you use a Target card when you shop, you can designate McGavock High School there as well! Please note that this is a school fundraiser, not a band fundraiser. Give With Target
