Hi everyone,
Here are the notes from yesterday's meeting:
  • $500 worth of gift cards have been purchased and mailed to OOB contact
  • As of meeting time, most of the gift certificates have been distributed to OOB families
  • Landry's appreciated the business
  • It was decided that Landry's gift cards may not be very helpful to Biddeford residents
  • Brenda contacted Ray's Market in Biddeford and something similar to gift cards for food only has been established
  • There was a suggestion of $500 in funding for Biddeford general assistance - unanimous vote in favor
  • Donations would be appreciated by Stone Soup
  • They are not currently experiencing any difficulty sourcing food items
  • There has been increased usership - they have extended their hours
  • Bon Appetit submitted request for funds to be used for carpentry, painting, and updating kitchen
  • Marty will ask if donated supplies and volunteer labor would be helpful
  • Paulette made a motion to donate $500 to Stone Soup, seconded by Marty
  • Unanimous vote in favor - Marty will send contact info to Conrad
  • Roland donated $1,000 to buy boxes of food for the needy in Jordan and requested additional funds from club
  • Each box of food that is distributed can feed a family of 4 for a month
  • There was some discussion as to whether it might be best to reserve funds for local causes
  • We hope to have more funds available in the future, and recognize that we are an international organization
  • Unanimous vote in favor of an additional $500 donation from the subcommittee
  • Brenda, Conrad, & Kaitlin will work on district grant request for additional funding
