Upcoming Events

Looking for ways to support HSEC this fall? Look no further. Here's the roundup of our upcoming events and volunteer opportunities.

To sign up as a volunteer for any of these events, visit our new volunteer website here.  (If you have not yet registered for the new site, see this post for instructions.)

Oct 13th and 27th - ECU Concession Stand

HSEC runs a concession stand at ECU home football games! Volunteers take and fill orders and prepare food (pop popcorn, wrap hot dogs, fill drinks, and prepare nachos). Volunteers must stay for the duration of the event, arriving 2 1/2 hours before game time and staying as long as needed (generally through the beginning of the 4th quarter). Volunteers for this event receive a FREE HSEC volunteer t-shirt and will get breaks and snacks throughout the game. 

If you're attending the game, stop by our stand and support HSEC!

October 13th - volunteers needed 2-8
October 27th - TBA (game time is not yet set)

Edited to add: we are still looking for vendors for Howl-o-ween, and we are also still in need of donated items for the silent auction and bake sale. If you are interested in becoming a vendor or providing items, please contact for more information.


  1. Are you still accepting vendors for Howl-o-ween and if so, how do I go about signing up to be one? I don't see a link on the Howl-o-ween info.

  2. Wonderful, Sillyrabt! We are indeed still looking for vendors for Howl-o-ween (as well as donated items for the silent auction and baked goods for the bake sale). Please contact for more information. Hope to see you there!
