Thank you to Ron Bergstrom, Donovan Jurss (Happy birthday buddy!), Steve McFarlane, Mark Pirlot, Jim Ridderbush, and Tony Vanderbloemen for picking up collection boxes Tuesday Night and yesterday. Better weather than the blizzard we faced in 2013. We had approximately 600 more in the boxes and there are a couple collection sites which indicated more donations are still coming. Since we usually have additional donations come in for a couple weeks after the drive ends, we'll have a final number to announce at that point but we surpassed this year's goal because of your generous donations.
