WE DID IT! After three weeks (plus) of online giving from some of you …. the first BAAT project with many community partners is almost done. Online donations of $1,410.00 were received via WeGive at http://hopewoodson.org.
We also received generous toy donations from HandsOn Jacksonville to help balance the monies received to ensure that every student receives a toy this year. Thanks HOJ!!! The great part of it all is that opposed to each student receiving one gift; every student will receive a bundle of gifts.
Some of the toys were delivered to Carter G. Woodson yesterday. The remaining gifts will be purchased and wrapped today at the school starting at 5:30 PM. Feel free to join us for the big wrapping party 🙂 Woodson is located at 2334 Butler Street, 32209. We’ll have a huge day of giving on Wednesday before the students leave for the holiday break. If you would like to help out please let me know ASAP. The toys will be disbursed between 10 AM and 1:30 PM Wednesday.
Thanks again for all your help!
