Please remember you can always click on pictures to enlarge. And you may need to do that to see the stats. I no longer have a neat software where I could make grafts so this is a spread sheet from google docs, but they don't let you post/paste it anywhere, so saved it in PDF, the printed it so I could scan it to make it a picture in order to insert here in the blog post. Thus the quality/sharpness isn't the best. But, I believe you can read it.
The numbers in red represent where we collected and donated more in the year 2019 then we did in the previous year 2018. You can see we did better with cotton washcloths, hats, slippers, and socks! Way to go ladies.
Additionally, you can see the percentage of our goal. The goal we used for 2019 was an average of the previous 6 years. We didn't make 100% of goal on any item, but we hit 77% of our goal of 347 for cotton cloths. AND our sock goal percentage was 74%. That goal was 152 and we donated 113. Our 3rd item was scarves, and we hit 55% of our goal on scarves which was 383, you can see we collected and donated 212.
All in all, it looks to me like we warmed and cared for a good number of people. Some folks change which charities they support over time, and that's ok. Some folks have found similar charities in their areas, that's good to...it means they are still helping people even if not here through Bridge and Beyond. So, let's not feel bad that we didn't hit 100% of our goals. Let's celebrate what we did accomplish. And on that score we donated more Cotton Washcloths, Hats, Slippers, and Socks. All items that are greatly appreciated.
