Winter drive wrap-up!

By Diana Ross | Posted in Staff Blogs, WBJC News | 8 Comments

Thank you so very much to each and every one of you who called in your pledge of support during last week’s Winter Pledge Drive! Thank you also for your patience while we all adjusted to a new computer system. This was a major upgrade to how we do business, and will make our drives more streamlined. Case in point, we would normally be hand-processing the 800+ credit card pledges over the next two weeks, but thanks to our volunteers and this new system, they are already done!

This week we’re sending out the “Bill Me” pledges, we are already printing the acknowledgements, and next week we’ll probably start mailing out the premiums we have in stock. (If you didn’t already choose your premium, a list will come with your letter, and you can just send your selection back to us in the envelope, or call the Membership Office.)

And now, the numbers…

The Winter Buyback Campaign raised $67,517.10, so we were able to chop Saturday off the drive.

Winter Drive Goal (for the 3 remaining days): $99,000

Total number of Drive pledges: 932
Total Drive amount raised: $115,774.00

of that…

80 were online pledges and 238 were NEW members

This was a truly fabulous and successful pledge drive! We want to add a special thanks to our Food Donors, Volunteers, and Franco and Ron on the IT team for all their hard work. We wouldn’t have been so successful without every one of you!
