Will County WALK/Joliet Fundraising Deadline

Saturday, June 13, 2020


Drop off date for pledge booklets, FundEasy reports, and money

June 13, 2020

 

Thank you so much for doing the Walk virtually this year!  We really appreciate your efforts to support this ministry during these troubled days! 

Hopefully you have collected all your pledges and entered them on your FundEasy page. If not, please do so by 5:00pm on Friday, June 12 by logging in to your FundEasy page and clicking "record offline gift." Please include all of the donor's information. Any donations you may receive after 5:00 on Friday can be included in your envelope and brought to:

  • Pregnancy Resource Center (2 Uno Circle, Joliet, IL) between 1pm and 3pm Saturday afternoon.

PLEASE NOTE: Your collected pledges need to be in a sealed envelope with your full name, phone number and the amount collected on the outside of the envelope.

If you are also using a Sponsor Pledge Form, please include the form and any donations collected in your envelope. Indicate on your Sponsor Pledge Form if a donation was given through FundEasy to avoid duplicate pledges. 

T-shirts (for those raising $50 or more) and hoodies (for those raising $300 or more) will be available at both drop off locations while quantities last. 

If the Saturday drops off times do not work for you, the Pregnancy Resource Center will be open Monday, June 15th from 10am to 4pm to receive your pledges and distribute t-shirts and hoodies. Please come in the front door and take the elevator to lower level.

If you have any last minute questions, or need to make other arrangements give us a call at 815.744.7755.

Prizes will be awarded at a later date, when we are able to gather and celebrate!

Thank you for walking the WALK!
