Volunteer Sign-Up for Parents' Club Events

The Mount de Sales Parents’ Club organizes multiple events during the year. We can only do this with the help of numerous volunteers. Please consider helping with one or more of these activities. We welcome all volunteers from the Mount de Sales community! Alumnae, past parents, grandparents, and all our friends who wish to volunteer are greatly appreciated.

We appreciate any and all help you can give. All volunteer names will be forwarded to committee chairpersons who will contact you with more details and coordinate volunteer duties. In many cases, your daughters earn service hours when they volunteer with you. The Parents’ Club President is Valerie Queensberry P'20, vaqski@verizon.net, and the Parents' Club Vice-President is Grace Carter P'21, 814.602.1799, grace.cartermdsa@gmail.com.

Please contact Kim Dignan, volunteer coordinator, at kdignan@mountdesales.org with any questions.
