Goal Increased!

Those of you who have been checking the site regularly may have noticed that our goal listed on our thermometer keeps going up.  That’s a great thing!!  That’s because all of you have been so generous that we’ve far surpassed our original goal.  So, when we surpass the goal, does that mean we quit there?  No way!!  We’re hoping we have to increase the goal many more times before the end of this drive.  Remember, every bag given makes a difference!!  Keep collecting those bags through August 15th (and if you want to do a collection after that, feel free to contact us and we can arrange that too!).

Great news for those of you in the Huntley area – the Reebok Outlet in Prime Outlets Huntley has offered to be a drop-off location for the duffel bag drive.  And, to make things even better, they will give a 40% discount on any bags purchased for the drive!  (They will also accept other bags as well, so you don’t have to buy one there to use them as a drop-off location).

New drop-off locations are still being added regularly (for instance, the UPS store in Buffalo Grove will also be collecting bags starting next week), so check the list of drop-off locations often!
