First Responders T-shirt Campaign
August 12, 2019
I'm very excited to announce that we have received over 40 patches and over $5,000 in donations for the First Responder's Hero Room at Peoria's NEW Ronald McDonald House opening this fall! Locally we have had an AMAZING response and we even have received patches from Miami, FL and Memphis, TN making this a NATIONAL project! Thank you to everyone who has worked so hard already to raise money and spread the word.
The deadline to submit patches is October 1st, 2019! We are excited to announce our t-shirt campaign that will run until September 30th for a unique way to raise the $200 needed for your department to submit a patch. If your department has already submitted a donation you can also do it! EVERY dollar makes a huge difference! I'm personally donating the t-shirts so 100 PERCENT of your $20 donation will go to the FIRST RESPONDERS HERO ROOM!
If you are willing to lead the t-shirt campaign at your department, all you have to do is be the point person to gather the orders, collect the money and pass out the shirts once I deliver them to you. I will gather your order form and donations at the end of September and deliver your shirts to your department by the end of October. Checks need to be made out to Ronald McDonald Charities of Central Illinois. Each point person will receive a FREE t-shirt as a gift to promote the campaign. Please send me your t-shirt size and mailing address and we will get that to you now.
Please help me spread the word about this t-shirt campaign to fellow departments. I cant wait to see these shirts all over our community! Thank you Mark Shaw for doing the leg work getting these shirts designed. If you need a color printed order form delivered please contact me directly and I would be happy to get that to you!
