Fundraiser Update - King Soopers

on Mon, 02/13/2017 - 14:34

I want to update everyone regarding the King Soopers Neighborhood Reward Program.

For the period 25 December 2016 thru 21 January 2017, deposits were made to 14 cards totaling $2,285.00. The usage was about the same as last month. We have not accumulated $5,000 in deposits yet, so there was no check issued by King Soopers. For the period of October 2016 thru January 2017, we have accumulated deposits of $8,747.33. This is a good foundation for the 2017 Awards Banquet. Remember that, if we can get about $70,000 in deposits prior to November, we can entirely fund the 2017 banquet without charging anyone for tickets! We have recorded about 12.5% toward that goal at this point. This is certainly a goal that is achievable if everyone uses their card to purchase groceries and fuel.

If anyone has questions regarding how this program works, please call either Marjorie or me and we will explain just how easy it is. Great job everyone!!!!! Martin F. (Marty) Essigmann, P.E.

Shannon with the Explorers help just distributed 10 King Soopers Cards to CSFD Retiree’s yesterday! They were excited to support the Explorers and have two Explorers at their breakfast. And we have more cards on hand…what an easy fundraiser, we can get you a card!!

Thank you Shannon! Sincerely, Captain Broch

Most of you know we los tone of our own the end of October 2016. Jermaine Frye was a past explorer and a Paramedic/Fire Fighter with Cimmaron Hills Fire Dept. here in Colorado Springs. He left behind a finance' and baby on the way. The baby is due in March and the explorer post thought it would be a great idea to show our support to do a diaper drive and a few other thangs for the baby.

Please no newborn sizes on anything.

Diapers: Loves, Huggies or Pampers we would like varied sizes so they last awhile

Onsies:varied sizes Socks: varied sizes, Soft wash clothes, Burb rags and Bibs
