Mailroom Monday: December 27, 2010

Wow...it's our final Mailroom Monday post of 2010!! This week 6,625 cards were mailed out - at a cost of $248.20!  (And check out the picture of what santa claus brought to each shipper - a new 3" tape gun and case of packing tape! Are we geeky or what!)


What an amazing year it has been! Many thanks to all of you who make this work possible....it's been astonishing to see the growth - and the number of heroes we have continued to support throughout the whole year!


A quick note about receipts: We'll be emailing those out by the end of January - sooner if possible. We are in the midst of a data conversion that will make it possible to email them this year, instead of going with paper like we did last year....saving us tons of money and labor! Stay tuned to the Homefront Blog and Facebook for a notice about when those go out; if you don't receive one when they get emailed out, you can let us know your email addy and we'll get one right out to you.

Glad that Santa Claus was so good to all the shippers, lol. Actually I'll bet that gift was greatly appreciated! We all know that OWH shippers are THE BEST!!
