PICTURED - Stephanie Clock Senior Administrator/Project Coordinator from Gale Development Services / Campus at Greenhill and her family along with Jason Zandri and three of his four children.
Collections wrapped up this morning (Saturday April 7, 2012) to top off the first full week of collecting as part 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
I don’t have all the donation counts in for the weekend yet as my Dad still has his money from collecting this week to get over to me but my best guess would be we collected close to $1,200.00 (which is effectively what we need to average each week to get the maximum amount from the pledge offered).
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.
We need additional help from people that can spend a couple of hours in the morning 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:
