Questions- Email

So what is a collection day?

We asked each of the organizations for whom we do service projects, "what do you need that we can ask people to donate." We publish the list. Then one Saturday, in a parking lot, we have a vehicle for each oragnization. You drive in with the things from the list you are willing to donate, we collect the stuff, you get your tax letter and drive away.
