Members of Team NMLC formed an assembly line in the conference room this afternoon to “go postal,” so to speak. They put the finishing touches to mailings for the $100,000 Challenge Grant to open the National Marine Life Center’s new marine animal hospital on October 30th in time for the fall stranding season on Cape Cod.
$100,000 Challenge Hits the Mail
Proving that no challenge is too difficult for an enthusiastic team, Joanne, Julie, Brian and Don tossed letters, envelopes, stamps and quips around the room like boomerangs. Now they’re hoping responses will begin rolling into the NMLC in similar piles, so they can ban together once again for another postal party, this time to send you personal notes to express our deepest gratitude and appreciation.
