ASP Stock Sales! We’re not done yet…

ASP stock sales are well underway and a big THANKS to all of you for your efforts so far. We are almost ¾ of the way to our $21,000 goal!

Here are some ideas for kicking sales up a notch (this is for adults as well as teens):

  • EMAIL: I have pasted a template for what I used to solicit my homeowners association below. Emailing is fast and easy, and saves us a lot of administrative time and cost. Consider emailing neighbors, friends, family, coworkers, or anyone else you didn’t mail a letter to.
  • SOCIAL MEDIA: Paste the donation link (www.oymt.info) on Facebook, Twitter, etc. and share with any other groups or pages that may be able to help.
  • FELLOWSHIP: If they’re not doing it already, ask your priest to advertise the trip in the bulletin and during church announcements stating that you can still receive donations. Also ask to have the church website and Facebook pages post the donation link. Most of the coffee hour sales have wound down by now, but if you’re feeling adventurous, take some forms around the room at coffee hour and tell people about the project. The more they hear, the more they will want to be involved.

Please keep the money and forms clipped together, labeled with either your name or church fellowship, and turn them in at our next meeting on June 5

After the June 5 meeting, I will be emailing you a list of donors that you will need to send Thank You’s to. Keep in mind that it’s a lot easier and cheaper to use email, so make sure to ask people to put their email address on the form if they have one. Hugs are also a free thank you, for those you can reach!

Great job so far, and keep up the good work! See you on June 5.

Hello Wood Lot neighbors!

Once again, I am going on a mission trip to repair homes in Appalachia this July with our church youth group.  I am very excited for our sixth annual weeklong journey to help those in need make their homes warmer, safer, and drier. 

If you would like to make a donation, you can pop in and say, “Hi!” or place it in our mailbox (6 Honey Hollow).  Checks should be made payable to Holy Trinity Orthodox Church.  There is also a Paypal option via the Donate button at: www.oymt.info. Receipts are available for tax deduction upon request.

To learn more about our parent organization, ASP, visit www.asphome.org.

Any support you can give us is greatly appreciated!
