Thanks to 65 contributing Desert Thunder families, we had a tremendous Spring Cleaning Fundraiser. We collected close to 10,000 lbs of spring cleaning discard and earned just shy of $1700 for the team... just for getting unwanted stuff out of our homes! Our collection filled Weigh To Fundraise's truck to the brim, which they found to be awesome.
Going forward we will plan to do this fundraiser again for it's relative ease and potential return. With approximately 170 member families we know there is plenty of opportunity within our membership to have another strong collection. Please watch for news of the next cleaning event in the fall or winter.
Thank you to Alex Duggan for the flier production and to Melissa Lerma and Li Zhu for over-seeing the drop off site while teams were either training or off to Far Westerns.
The winning training group by a landslide was the Pre-Senior group with over 200 bags/boxes collected and donated.
Thanks to all who donated and especially if you went out to seek donations from others to help support this great team!
