Quarter Drive Fundraiser A Success

Dear Saybrook Sharks,

I am so grateful that my kids' summer swim team, Saybrook Sharks, chose to support Families Helping Families with last night’s quarter drive!

These quarters will help our 10 families with the surprising cost of doing a load of laundry ($3-5).  Probably most of our swim team families have the luxury of a washer and dryer in their homes.  But somewhere in our collective pasts, we've had to gather quarters for every load of laundry.  Our clients (all Moms with children) are on a very very strict budget, and sometimes they have to choose between buying medicine or toilet paper, and doing a load of laundry.
We rely on donations of quarters to help meet that need.   And thanks to the Sharks and the Rebels, around 114 loads of laundry are paid for!
Last night Saybrook collected 728 quarters, and Cress Creek Country Club collected 643!  I was completely amazed and thrilled at the success of this drive!  What a generous group these two teams are!

Thank You!  And Go Sharks!  Go Rebels!

Your Saybrook Neighbor,

Mandie  Jue
