The Importance of Volunteers Like YOU!

This page contains many upcoming volunteer opportunities.  Some are one-time events, others may ask a longer commitment. We wouldn’t be able to implement or sustain events and programs we provide for the Keller community without volunteers. We’re lucky to have over 450 students and therefore such a large community of potential volunteers! If you haven’t volunteered this year yet, please consider giving your time to any of the events listed. Your kids will thank you for it!

International Fun and Food Festival & Silent Auction

On March 2, 2018 the Helen Keller Elementary School PTA will host our tenth annual Silent Auction to benefit the PTA. The Silent Auction will again be teamed with our International Fun and Food Festival (IFFF). During this event, our building will open its doors to more than 500 guests from our school and the surrounding community for entertainment, games, crafts, prizes, and a tasting room- all with an international theme. The event is our school's primary winter and spring fundraiser. 

If you would like to help with this event, there are lots of volunteer opportunities. Volunteer shifts are available in 30-minute intervals so you can still enjoy the evening with your family and friends!  Sign up genius coming soon.
