On December 23, 2018, we hosted our very first Holiday Open House. Owners, Chris and Dale, wanted to treat their employees, subcontractors, vendors and more to some yummy eats and festive refreshments. We were blessed with warm weather as one of East Coast’s very own volunteered his BBQ skills and smoked some delicious meat for all to enjoy. We took advantage of the crowd and collected cash for a donation benefiting a local homeless shelter, Diakonia. Monies collected totaled $277. With East Coast’s match, the total donation totaled over $500 for a grand total of $554! That far surpassed our expectations and we express our extreme gratitude to all who contributed to this local cause.
We love to support our community, especially those of smaller stature! We were happy to be a “UnBOOlievable” Silver sponsor for a local elementary school’s fall fundraiser. Showell Elementary hosted their annual Fall Festival in October, an event open to not only students and their families, but also to the public. This fundraiser is typically Showell PTA’s largest fundraiser and we were happy to help! Our donation helped the PTA keep their costs low so more money could go back to the students. As you know PTAs fund a large portion of extracurricular activities for students and support teachers in their classrooms by providing supplies, etc. It is extremely important that we give back to our local community and supporting this local school was right up our alley! We hear the day was a great success and will continue to be a proud supporter of our community schools!
