Volunteer Deposit:Volunteer Form

The Eagles are a non-profit organization that relies on volunteers to get things done. Included in each athlete's registration fee is a $50 per family volunteer deposit, which you can earn back by volunteering a total of six (6) hours during the 2017 season. Otherwise, your deposit is used to help pay operating expenses and for uniforms, supplies, and equipment. There are a lot of volunteer opportunities, which you can see during the sign ups, and pitching in to help is part of the Eagles experience. Once you have contributed your volunteer time, you can fill out a Funds Directive, requesting a refund or that your funds be contributed to the "Jack Dawson Scholarship" for deserving high school seniors who have run with the Eagles. If you do not complete a Funds Directive, by no later than 7 days prior to picnic, your deposit will be deemed a donation to the scholarship fund. The Treasurer will provide refunds checks at the picnic.
