Store Fundraiser Overwhelming Success

Boscov’s, a Northeastern department store chain, helps local charities raise funds by inviting them to sell 25% off discount shopping passes to an annual one-day sales event. This year the Mid-Atlantic Branch was blessed with an anonymous donor who pledged to match monies up to $2,000 for “Friends Helping Friends Day.” MAB volunteers eagerly maximized this wonderful offer by doubling their efforts to pre-sell $5 discount shopping passes to friends, neighbors, church members, and business associates. On the October 16th sale day volunteer teams went ‘all out’ selling additional passes and telling shoppers about our mission at tables in seven Boscov locations. We were stunned by the campaign’s final results – 409 passes sold for a total of $2,428, including almost $400 in donations! With the matching gift we raised $4,428, far surpassing last year’s $790 total!! We are humbled and awed by the Lord’s goodness and generosity.  Photos are volunteers on sale day: 1) Cliff and Marilyn Kraft in Exton, PA, 2) Kathy Mest, Roger Hazzard, and Sandy O’Hedy in Dover, DE, 3) Ruth Hewlett in Newark, DE.
