NCHS Band Boosters ForestNation
Say Thanks to NCHS Band Boosters!
One of the parents in our group suggested we try the ForestNation fundraiser because it was something totally different from our usual fundraisers. Raising students awareness of benefits to the environment, both locally and where ForestNation plants the other trees.
We really like that ForestNation plants another tree somewhere else for each tree kit we sell in our fundraiser. We thought it would be fun as well as educational for the kids to use the internet to locate the trees ForestNation plants.

NCHS Band Boosters
We are a booster organization made up of parents of band students. Our purpose is to help financially support the high school and middle school bands in Summersville, WV. And we are also the band’s “fan club”, so to speak.
NCHS Band Boosters will be sponsoring this fundraiser for the NCHS Marching Band and the SMS Band. The boosters have just ordered new uniforms for the Marching Grizzlies (what we call our high school band) and hopefully we will raise enough funds to help with payment. The band also travels to several competitions – as well as football games – in the fall, and we provide funding for transportation, music, instrument repair – pretty much everything the band needs.
We believe in the importance of participation in group activities in school, and to be a responsible contributor to the band. This fundraiser is our first “green” project.
We are using tree kits to raise money for new uniforms for the NCHS Marching Band.
We hope the effect of using ForestNation will raise awareness amongst the students and our community about our environment.
