The monetary success of the R4R project is beyond belief. The first collection last month was amazing on an entirely different plane. Donations flooded in from the beginning of the donation day and yet, the crew never got behind. There were many sorters who all worked very efficiently. It was incredible to see. Over half of the workers were from the community, but UMCC was also well represented. As the day wore on, even more volunteers showed up. Packers arrived by 2:00 p.m. What a whirlwind of activity! The donation day closed at 3:00 p.m. and by 4:30, everything was packed up and stored, the floor swept, and the gym was ready for the next week’s activities. Many hands make for happy and light work.
