    Become a Community Partner: Looking to introduce your organization to the Framingham Public Schools community? Consider becoming a Community Partner by running your own table activity! Learn more about this unique opportunity to connect with Framingham families!

    Food Vendors: If you are interested in providing food to Framingham families (for purchase or otherwise) at this event, please contact Joe Corazzini for more information.

    Volunteer: To build on the spirit of collaboration, engagement, and creating community connection, we are seeking volunteers to help ensure the event runs smoothly. If you or your local business / organization are interested in volunteering on Friday, September 6th (or Monday the 9th if there’s rain), please review the various opportunities and sign up for a position.

    Donate: One of the unique elements of this event is incentivized community engagement. That means that every family who interacts with our Community Partner table activities will earn free raffle tickets for some incredible prizes. That is where you come in! Organizations who donate raffle items (products, services, gift certificates, experiences, etc) are helping to reward community engagement. 

    Alternatively, it would be great to outfit volunteers with some identifiable gear to ensure that they can be recognized by attendees who might need assistance. This could be lanyards, T-shirts, pins, hats, etc. If you are interested in making a donation of any kind, please contact Ildefonso Arellano: iarellano@framingham.k12.ma.us.


    Thank you in advance for helping to make the 2019 Back-to-School Family Picnic a success!
