Store Fundraiser Reaches New Record

Boscov’s Department Store helps regional charities raise funds by encouraging the sale of five-dollar discount shopping passes to their annual one-day fall sale. After several weeks of selling passes and telling others about Orphan Grain Train, volunteers from Mid-Atlantic branch were thrilled to learn they raised $4,862, a new high! Success came with the help of an anonymous matching pledge that doubled all donations up to $2,000. Many volunteers experienced excellent pre-event activity, unsolicited donations from kindly supporters, and a good in-store response on the October 16th sale day. As an added bonus, a gift card drawing was won by a MAB pass holder, securing a $100 dollar Boscov donation to our branch! Each year the event challenges volunteers to do better, and every time the Lord continues to amaze us.

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever!”           Ephesians 3: 20, 21
