It's been an interesting month and we have managed to get quite a bit done. Our agency van has been repaired and we are looking for volunteer drivers. Your driving record should be clean for the last 3 years. Please let us know if you are interested.
I am back to work, after being sick for 2 months there was lots to get caught up on. I do have an amazing team that keeps things going while I am out. Interesting fact is that if you call our main number it goes to me and I answer the phone 24/7 even if I am sick. We do have clients that call at 3 am.
Now with the money we didn't make at Tiller Days, (There was a horrible wind storm and the police shut down the 3 day event Friday night and all day Saturday. We were allowed to open on Sunday but Saturday is usually the best day.) we lost about $1,000 dollars in revenue. Then we spent $1,000 getting the van repaired. We operate on a budget of $20,000 a year so this really hurt us. We have to raise the money to cover this and hopefully more. We are launching the end of year Holiday funding drive. What's really cool about this year is we are using a new platform that allows you to create your own fundraising page and see how much you have raised as an individual. Check it out on Crowdrise here
. And please donate what you can :)
If you know any one that uses hearing aids please share the info below, it could save them a lot of money.
Thank you for your continued support.
