---- — Band Boosters, Schwans join
The Centerville Band Boosters has joined forces with Schwans to raise money for new uniforms for the Centerville High School marching band.
CHS band director Jim DePrizio has said they need to raise $40,000 to acquire the new uniforms to replace the ones they currently have that are 40 years old.
There are several ways to participate in the fundraiser. Go to Schwans-Cares.com, click on “Find a Campaign” and enter Centerville; or call 1-855-870-7280 and enter ID Centerville, Ia Band Boosters. And then place your Schwans order.
During the fundraiser, 20 percent of any Schwan’s order made online or by telephone will be donated to the band boosters. And for each $25 gift certificate purchased online, $10 will be donated to the band uniform drive.
The fundraiser between the Centerville Band Boosters and Schwans started Nov. 7 and will continue until Dec. 22.
However, after Dec. 22, Schwans will donate 5 percent of all online orders to the band boosters until Nov. 6, 2014.
