August 2019 Activity Report
From the Office
Summer brought “expansion” to our Information Tables for Life, along with a couple of new volunteers. If you have an interest in helping at a table, contact Cecelia in our office 925-944-5351 and she will try and find a time that works for you. May of our recent tables have been in the “twilight” 3PM – 7PM time slot… so students looking for volunteer hours – consider tabling to fulfill the requirement and learn about life issues at the same time.
We have had some spirited discussions and even helped several folks towards a change of heart. MANY people have come by just to thank us for being there. Your donations make all this possible.
A quick update on our financial progress…. through the first almost eight months of 2019, we are tracking expenses in excess of donations in the range of $5,500.
An Information Table for Life costs between $25-$50 and providing materials for a classroom presentation is in the same cost range. Would you like to sponsor a Mall Table?
And on the horizon, we need to upgrade our computer. Our current computer is running on Windows 7, our accounting system is Quickbooks 2009! As you can tell Cecelia isn’t into upgrading; however, the time is soon coming when it will be necessary!
One of our greatest needs is for volunteers, especially mall table volunteers and media speakers. While Cecelia does a great job talking to the media, she would like to “share the opportunities.” Recently one of our volunteers did a media interview and commented it wasn’t that difficult. We will prep you and provide you materials; you can even become an expert on a topic and be ready for “media stardom.”
We thank our generous donors and volunteers for the ongoing support. Contact our office if you need materials or would like to help us as an Information Table volunteer and/or a speaker for classroom presentations.
