Cans and Fans Progress Report
- on July 20, 2010
So many thanks to our generous LJW readers, WellCommons Community and Checkers and Westlake patrons! Yesterday, we were able to send a full van load of fans and pantry items to the Salvation Army. We're doing well, and still have almost two weeks to go in the drive! The fans collected so far will most likely be all distributed by the end of the week, and there are sure to be more requests. Diapers and wipes for the pantry are also still in high demand -- any size.
Here's our mid-way progress report:
- Box Fans Donated: 37
- Online Fan Donation Dollars: $80
- Online Pantry Donation Dollars: $0
- Online T-Shirt Purchases: 4 ($60 to SA)
- Cash Donations: $23
- Pantry/Food Items: Estimated value $300 (3 full grocery baskets)
Our initial goal was for 75 fans and 2000 donated items. Ambitious, but I'm sure we can still do it. We're really on a roll! There's so much need out there, and you can imagine about how far $300 will go for just one family, let alone the dozens there are that will rely on the pantry to help them get by this year. We are still accepting donations and fans at the Journal-World office and online. And thank you once again to those who have so generously contributed.
