Help spread some joy this season.
THE FROG AND THE FURIOUS
A Race to Help Our Areas Homeless
Our goal is to provide 30 Winter Backpacks, containing a large variety of useful and life-supporting items, to our areas homeless throughout December. The donation drive is now underway, and will continue until Thursday, December 31st, 2015. The first pack is completed, 29 more to go!
It’s Winter. It’s Cold. Let’s do this!
HOW DOES IT WORK
Donations are being accepted by the Thirsty Frog. All donations, of any denomination, are welcome, and very much appreciated.
100% of the money collected will be used solely for purchasing the items found in each pack. The bags will then be distributed to a person in need once each is complete. We are looking to fill 30 backpacks, each pack containing $20 worth of goods (packing list found below). Any money we collect over that amount will be used to compile additional backpacks, as many as the donated monies provide.
To participate, come in to the Thirsty Frog, and let the bartender know you would like to donate to the “Frog and the Furious Campaign”. You can donate with cash or a personal check. We can provide you with a receipt of the donation, if you would like, however we are not a non-profit charity, so the donations are not tax deductible.
Every $5 DONATION made in house, will earn you a free pint glass to take home with you.
Every $20 PACK DONATION made in house, will earn you a free drink.
Your name, or alias (whichever you prefer) will be collected to add to our websites list of donors by writing your name on a blank race car, which we will then hang up behind the bar during the campaigns duration.
If you are unable to make it down to the FROG, but would like to participate and donate to this campaign, we are gladly accepting checks made payable to, The Thirsty Frog.
