Hobart High School JROTC is having a fundraiser to benefit the Food Pantry!
Hobart JROTC is sponsoring a mattress fundraiser for the Hobart Food Pantry on Sunday, March 14, 2021 from 10-5 in the Hobart High School field house. Our GOAL is to raise $10,000, and EVERY penny goes directly to the food pantry to offset the deficit caused by the pandemic preventing the two large food drives they usually depend on. We only benefit because it helps our community! This is an effort of Hobart helping Hobart.
You may not be familiar with a mattress fundraiser, but it really works! Please take a look at his video https://youtu.be/3UdtdXfUU7A
which explains more.
We are NOT asking anyone to buy anything they don’t already need and plan to purchase. We ARE asking you to helps us get the word out. Usually, 1 in every 10 families are looking to buy a mattress. We just need to share this great opportunity with them.
Our partner is Custom Fundraising Solutions, a local Valparaiso company who has helped raise over a million dollars in NWI in the last 5 years. Every mattress in my own home and of my extended family has been purchased at a previous mattress fundraiser. They are the highest quality we have ever had at about 50-60% of the normal cost.
As stated in the video, we will accept direct monetary or food donations as well, but we will be able to donate SO much more money if the actual mattress sale is a success!
Thank you for helping your neighbors!
