We need volunteers to solicit donations for buddy poppy days. Please sign up for a slot or several if you can. The success of this fund raiser depends on our post and auxiliary members volunteering to help. Each slot is for two hours on a specific day at a specific business. You can sign up for as many as you want, but we are depending upon you to follow through. We are particularly trying to cover grocery stores over the weekend (Friday, Saturday and Sunday) as these locations give the greatest return. Please sign up for shifts at the indicated locations and times if possible.
We will be collecting at: Ace Hardware stores (4 locations), Jewel Osco (4 locations), Marianos, Starbucks/Apple Store, Trader Joes, Walmart and the two Naperville Metra Train Stations. Scroll through the list, pick a spot and time, and if it shows that people are still needed, click and sign up. PLEASE be sure to give us BOTH phone and email contact information. Most information flow will be via email.
Pick up bags of poppies and a collection can or milk jug (best) at the post (conference room on canteen level). When you go to collect, wear your cover and anything (shirt, vest, etc.) that helps identify you as a veteran. Within one day of collection, turn in your money to the bartender on duty. Your bag (a plastic sandwich bag is useful for this) should contain all the money you collected and a note with your name, when and where you collected, and how much you collected. We thank you for your willingness to donate your time to do this. YOU are a very large part of the success of this fund raiser.
