As an Administrative Assistant for Keep Akron Beautiful, one of my jobs is to record monies received from fundraising, donations, and grants. One thing I know is that Akron residents like the community improvement efforts of Keep Akron Beautiful and want to help.
From the Overwood Triangles Group who is “happy to be a part of beautifying our city,” to the single water bill donor, Susan, who added “Love the flowers,” with an accompanying smiley face, you all make this job of mine more awesome every day!
And to Timothy, Wendy, Stephen, Judith, Renee, and anyone else who has written notes to thank the program and crews for the beautification work, your words have been forwarded on…most definitely.
Last but not least, although the words of thanks are a little added “fun” in the donation envelope, we cannot stress enough that everyone’s donations throughout the year, in a tough economy, is much appreciated and allows us to Keep Akron Beautiful for YOU as well as out-of-town visitors you may want to brag to by showing our wonderful Akron city Flowerscapes.
On behalf of Keep Akron Beautiful, thank you, and we look forward to more of your notes.
If you want to say more, reply to this post. We would love to read your comments!
