Campus at Greenhill 2012 Wallingford Fireworks Celebration: We still need additional help with collecting donations.


My Father and I were out this past week collecting donations for the Campus at Greenhill 2012 Wallingford Fireworks Celebration. My Father was at Dunkin Donuts earlier in the week and I was working with him on Saturday (he was at the Landfill and I was at the Recycling Center).

We could still use some help; there are additional locations where we can stand and collect donations and we need more people to man them.

We are over half way to our goal in month one and that has NEVER happened in the two years prior that we have done this but we don’t want to rest on that fact; a spate of bad weather could cause us to miss our goals. With a major sponsor we cannot let that happen.

We could use more help during the weekday mornings if your work schedule allows; we like to try to fill the 6:30AM to 9:30AM shift at Dunkin Donuts on Wednesday, Thursday and / or Fridays but even if you can’t do the whole shift and hour or two is better than nothing.

Please let me know if you can help.

If you have other time to spare or want to help out in some other way please let me know as well.

We also could use some help with people soliciting businesses for sponsorships for the 2012 event and for advertising in the 2012 Program Guide so if “sales” is more your speed we could use your help there too.

As always, reminding your friends and neighbors about the fact that the Wallingford 4th of July Fireworks is fully funded by donations is always helpful too – especially all the folks in Yalesville whose 4th of July picnics are punctuated by the event.

Remind them to send in their donations:

Wallingford, CT 06492

As always, if anyone has any questions of me please feel free to reach out by calling 860 614 6069 or via email at Jason@Zandri.net. (Generally speaking, I can answer email faster than a phone call because of my work schedule).

We still have a ways to go to make our 2012 fundraising goal of $30,000.00 so we hope you consider pitching in to help save our grand celebration for the third year in a row.


  1. Jason sorry but I've been sick the past week. I would love to help and I live on the Sheehan side of town so the D & D on route 150 would be perfect. I was just wondering if you looked into getting the High school kids to assist volunteering?

  2. I can always use the help there - let me know when you have time.

    I still need to contact the schools to find out if we can engage them as part of the community service thing that they have to do before they graduate.

    Offhand - do you know who I need to contact?
