October 24, 2006 was a huge day for Eric's Goal! We received over $3,000 in donations from three major contributors.
First, Shirley Crook called to say she received a check from the American Legion Kent Island (MD) Post #278! A gentleman came into The Old Stevensville Barber Shop and gave Shirley this very generous donation!
Next, Ginny called to say she received another incredible donation in the form of a check from Tammie Gates with Operation Labor of Love (see post on blog), at our PO Box in Annapolis, MD!
And last but not least, I arrived home from work to find yet a third fabulous donation, a substancial check had arrived in the mail from the Kent Island (MD) Elks Lodge #2576!
When Shirley and I met on Wed, 10-25-06, I was surprised yet again with $190.00 in cash donations from the caring customers at Shirley & Charlie's shop in Stevensville, MD.
The checks and cash donations were deposited 10-28-06. When the checks clear we will again use the monies to purchase soccer balls and pumps and have them shipped to our American soldiers who will give them out to the Iraqi children.
Stay tuned for more information on purchases made with your generous and thoughtful donations!
With great appreciation of the American people and their ongoing generosity, many thanks to:
