When HR Florida’s conference committee and Executive Council members chose to support this charity, a seemingly goal of raising $1,500 for this cause which seemed realistic given the state of the current economy. However, all of this changed soon after a charity representatives spoke at a general session about the organization’s mission, showed a video clip about how far a few dollars can go, and conference attendees spent some of their own time helping to literally prepare packages of food. When all was said and done, attendees contributed $5,059.49!!!!!
According to Shannon Lands, HR FL State Council Treasurer, much of the donations were made in cash on site at the conference and that “…our attendees did a FABULOUS job in helping to raise money…”.
Please thank everyone in your chapter who donated and contributed to exceeding our goal by almost 350%!!!.
