Attached you will find all the documentation for the PWID that was presented and given to the DDs at the State Organization meeting at the end of June in Mesa. Please pass this information to your PWID chairman. If you do not have a chairman please select one as soon as possible and notify me of the chairman’s name. DD’s please distribute the PWID packets to each of your councils. If your council requires additional forms or posters let me know and I will get them to you.
In order to hold your drive at the Fry’s stores each council MUST reserve the store ahead of time. I have only heard back from a few councils with their requests. Please notify me as soon as possible which Fry’s your council would like so we can avoid any conflicts.
Councils should order their Tootsie Rolls soon. Many of you will have your drives in September so get your orders in well ahead of time. Smaller councils should consider teaming up with other councils to combine your orders and eliminate shipping costs.
In addition to you our own council’s efforts, consider having your charities submit a Grant Application. Last year, all submitted grant applications were funded at 100% of the request. While we cannot guarantee that again this year, we do urge you to have charities submit them. Grants are funded by the 25% state share of your fundraising.
We are awaiting issuance of the certificates of insurance. I will send those out as soon as they become available.
As always you can download all the information from the state website.
