EVJ-Community Fundraising Opportunity-Link your Fry's Card
Help support East Valley Juniors while also potentially assisting with your son or daughter’s volleyball account. Fry’s has begun a New Community Rewards Program this year that allows them to support non-profits in our community! EVJ is a non-profit and we have enrolled as a participating non-profit. Link your Fry’s VIP Card to East Valley Juniors Volleyball Club (now) and beginning September 1st, shop at Fry’s and use your VIP Card. Qualifying purchases will start accumulating and a % of your purchases throughout the year will be donated to EVJ! Our hope at EVJ is to credit individual player’s accounts that participate based on your individual donated amount each cycle. Friends and family can also get involved!
Enrollment begins now, but qualifying purchases will not begin until September 1st. Here are some easy steps to get started:
- Go to www.frysfood.com and click on Community
- On the left click on NEW Community Rewards Program
- Click on the Blue Enroll Now radio button
- If you already have signed in before, then simply put in your email and password and sign-in. If not, you may need to register for your first time and create a password.
- Now you should be able to put in EVJ’s organization # of 80249 and click Search
- East Valley Juniors Volleyball Club, Inc. should come up and then you can Save them as the organization
Once you have done the above, you can click on Account Summary on the left and you will be able to scroll down and see the Fry’s Community Rewards Program and EVJ as your organization of choice. This will be the page you will print and turn into EVJ at the end of each cycle. There are four cycles in the year:
- Cycle 1: September 1, 2013 – November 30, 2013 – Donations sent by December 31st to EVJ
- Cycle 2: December 1, 2013 – February 28, 2014 – Donations sent by March 31st to EVJ
- Cycle 3: March 1, 2014 – May 31, 2014 – Donations sent by June 30th to EVJ
- Cycle 4: June 1, 2014 – August 31, 2014 – Donations sent by September 30th to EVJ
We will request a summary from participants at the end of each cycle. You must be a participating member of EVJ in order to receive credit. If you have any questions about registering, you will need to work with Fry’s customer service. Other questions can be directed to Jen Leo. Thanks!
Community Service Pledge Drive
This pledge drive can be initiated at any time by a player. Player collects pledges from family, friends, relatives, and neighbors by personalizing and mailing the form letter out. In return the volleyball player will donate five (5) hours of community service during the club volleyball season. The community service project is up to the player and can be work done for a neighbor, elderly relative, church activity, tutoring another student, etc. Player is responsible for collecting the money from their sponsors for the pledges. Parents are responsible for assuring that the player does complete the community service project. This is a great opportunity to contribute back to the community. This is an individual player fundraiser.
Serve-A-Thon Pledge Drive
Serve-A-Thons will be held twice during the season for all EVJ teams. How it works? The maximum number of volleyball serves per player is 100 serves. Each player is responsible for collecting their pledges for each serve made or a flat donation pledge overall. This is a great opportunity to get support from friends at school. You can mail out a letter or get friends to sign a pledge form. Contact Jen Leo for more information. This is an individual player fundraiser.
