About our Mulch Sale

The Northwood Athletics Association’s mulch sale is the organization’s largest annual fundraising event. All of the proceeds help fund uniforms, equipment, field/court maintenance for Northwood’s athletic teams.

Not only can you support Northwood’s athletics by buying mulch but we can always use your help on mulch delivery day or your donation of food items to feed our volunteer workers that day.

How to volunteer for the Mulch Sale:

Students should show up on mulch delivery day (April 2nd, 8 am to 4pm) behind the school and be sure to sign in to recieve SSL hours. Adults, please click here to sign up for various tasks we need adult help with on Saturday, April 2nd.

It’s important to note that adults aren’t expected to even touch a bag of mulch if they don’t want to. We leave the heavy lifting to our young athletes. We have all kinds of tasks that need to be filled by adults that could use your touch like:

- supervising truck loading,

- driving a delivery truck,

- navigating for a delivery truck,

- driving students to unload trucks,

- driving your own vehicle for deliveries

- monitoring volunteer sign ins and SSL hours,

- providing food items,

- and serving food to volunteers.

Student volunteers earn money for their athletic team for each hour they work on Mulch Sale day. Adult volunteers earn double the $$ credit for the team(s) they indicate their service is for (at April 2nd sign in).

We have a big job to do on April 2nd, but if you volunteer, we think you’ll find that it really is a fun day of connecting with our Northwood athletics community.

Again, please click here to sign up to help us out in some way on April 2nd.
