2011 Annual Tootsie Roll Fundraiser Success

After 2 Saturdays of collecting at Giant Supermarket on Hungerford Drive (aka Rockville Pike north of Town Center), we’ve collected roughly $660. Last year, we collected $1080, but that included 6 mass collections which I chose not to do so we could focus on other activities within our council.

We had some double-booking issues on Oct 15, but we’ll try to avoid it next year (as we normally do a different Giant). The good thing is that all the money collected goes towards the same charity pool, but we don’t want to step on other councils’ toes if we can avoid it.

Thanks to those who volunteered their time to collect out in the cold! All of the money we collect will go to the mentally disabled of Montgomery County. Last year, we donated all of the money to CSAAC – Community Services for Autistic Adults and Children (http://www.csaac.org/), who were very appreciative of the donation.
