Wow! Last month we set a goal of welcoming 50 new recurring donors to the GGWash Neighborhood. You all rose to the challenge and then some: 62 of you made new, recurring monthly or annual commitments, raising more than $6,000 annually to support our work. I still can't get over it -- thank you! ( If you didn't yet donate, it's not too late [ggwash.org/neighborhood] ).
This month, we're focused on elections and growing our team. Keep reading to learn how you might contribute your talents to GGWash and make sure you have a plan to vote tomorrow. Hope to catch you at one of our last happy hours of the year!
All the best,
