As I gear up to head out this morning Monday April 16th to do a little collecting at the South Colony Dunkin Donuts (I have the week off from work this week) we have formally wrapped up our first 15 days of the matching donation effort from the Campus at Greenhill
In March, Campus at Greenhill became the Fireworks Fund naming convention sponsor by making a $10,000.00 donation to the effort.
In April, they have upped the ante by offering an additional pledge to donate matching funds for all citizen / private donations for the month up to $5,000.00
Last week, the week ending April 14th, we collected $1,158.00. That plus last week’s collections of $1,395.00 means we are sitting at $2,553.00.
Half way to the full $5,000.00 match at the half way point in time – perfect!
The last two weeks of April are going to be the toughest as my father will be away for vacation; that leaves us with just me collecting on Saturday mornings only for those two weekends.
I have one new volunteer that contacted me and I am psyched but I could use a couple more.
We need additional help from people that can spend a couple of hours in the morning, or really any time, standing around collecting – especially during those two weeks.
If you can help out let me know.
Also – if you were planning to make a donation, April is the month to do it as it is worth twice as much under the matching grant.
You can make your donations payable to the Wallingford Fireworks Fund and mail them in to:
