Thank you from the Bottom of Our HeartsOn behalf of the Board of Okicyap, we would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who contributed to the quilt auction, which produced over $10,000 in donations! We could hardly believe our eyes every time we came her to check on the funds raised.
To the Daily Kos Quilt Guild, what can we say, you started all of this with that amazingly beautiful quilt. We were really touched by all of the work and skill that went into the project.
To the donors who bid the quilt, up and up and up and up. Thank you for your donations. Even the small ones added up quickly. You have no idea what you are doing for our community by ensuring that we are on stable financial footing. We ordered a new truckload of food in the middle of the fundraiser because of it, and it is set to arrive on Friday, April 19th. In addition to that we are planning new activities, and we'll let you know more about that when they are more firm.
To the group from Native American Netroots and affiliated donors who donated for that large match. Your efforts really put it all over the top. Your donations, and the extra ones they inspired will have us on firm footing for months to come. Thank you for your dedication.
One More Thing....Because this fundraiser was so successful in inspiring people to donate not only money, but also clothing and other things, the pantry is actually filled to the brim with donations, particularly clothing. So, generous donors, thank you so much! We'd like you to hold off on sending any more clothing though because we just don't have anywhere to put it, even with our new storage room! We are so blessed to have this support at a time when another pantry in our area had to close because of lack of funds, and we'll let you know when we have room for more clothes.
