Calling All Volunteers

Good afternoon!

Upchurch is looking for a volunteer to help us get started with one of our PAYBAC partners, HyVee on 180th and Q Street.

Beginning on September 1, Upchurch families can save and turn in their HyVee receipts to Upchurch from any HyVee location. All receipts will be accepted from any HyVee location as long as they are dated from September 1-December 31.The receipts will be collected in a box in the front office. At the end of the program window, the receipts will be added up and returned to HyVee by January 11th. Just for turning these in and shopping at HyVee, Upchurch will receive 2% back!

Here is how you can help:

  • Let us know that you are interested!
  • Decorate a box for the front office (The HyVee representative recommended using HyVee ads as wrapping paper, but feel free to get as creative as you would like!)
  • Collect the receipts in January and add them up
  • Turn in the receipts and total to Brittany Wunderlich by Wednesday, January 9th.

Thank you for your consideration!
