-I live in Bloomington. If you are coming in for a game and want to meet up beforehand to drop off supplies let me know. During the marching band season, I try and check the email box daily. But feel free to call or text me anytime at 812-327-0306. I do work a non-traditional schedule though(graveyard shift!) so bare with me if I don't get back to you immediately.
-A limited number of parking passes (usually four or five) are available from the Athletic Department. They are for the grassy lot next to Marching Hundred Hall. If you are donating supplies and need a pass for the game, let me know! Otherwise, you can usually pull up on the East side of the building long enough to run supplies in.
- These marchers require LOTS of water on these hot days. We usually ask for a lot of donated cases of water at the beginning of the season and then take it off the requested items list as we build up a supply. We do have storage space in Marching Hundred Hall for cases of water and other non-perishable supplies.
-Some meals are more expensive than others, but on average it costs about $1000 per game to feed these hungry marchers (roughly $3 each). The good news is, there are only six home games this year as opposed to seven so that cuts down on expenses. We have found that it is easier to purchase items in bulk but we still welcome individual donations of small food items. All donations and expenses are published on this site, and any excess donations not used are held over for the next year.
-My daughter is a Senior this year so we'll be looking for someone to take over this program next year. You do not have to be local, multiple people could share tasks. I have someone who is thinking about it but it can always be a group effort. Let me know if you are interested.
-In the past, we have received requests to provide vegan, gluten free, and other special dietary accommodations. While we would love to be able to do this, it is simply too complicated due to the size of our group. We do offer a vegetarian option at every meal, as well as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for those you prefer not to eat the main meal.
