Thank you to each of you who participated, your businesses, employees, etc. for taking part in our 2018 75-minute Packing Challenge! We were astounded by the turnout and the amount of clothing that was sorted and packed.
As a result of your efforts, we ran out of clothes, ran out of bags, ran out of boxes….. and you packed over 8,000 pounds of clothing!
The amount of clothes that all of you packed in one week would usually take us 2 months to pack. We cannot thank you enough for your hard work and we are grateful for your caring hearts!
Your efforts will bless the lives of so many children. We hope that you enjoyed your time sorting & packing clothes and that you and your coworkers were able to build stronger relationships together. Your impact will be immense.
Our winning group that packed the most pounds of clothing (over 1,200 pounds) was Outdoor Concepts (pictured). Congrats!
Again, thank you for your participation. Be on the lookout for next year’s competition dates. This initial year was a learning experience for us, so next year should be even better! Some changes will be made including an additional contest for the business who packs the most pounds of clothing per person, so stay tuned!
