Hi Iris, not sure where in LI you are but definitely submit your letter with all tax information to the manager of your local Best Buy. They submit to corporate for approval & within 3-6 weeks you pick up a donation. Have in mind what you would like when approaching the manager in case he asks. Also, try ALL of the party places on Rte.110, they usually give a gift certificate towards a party. Also, if this is your first time & you are running the show I would look into the Microsoft program that allows multiple people access to update, so that all who are soliciting know who has been approached already. There is a lot of organization need & thinking ahead for all of the deadlines necessary. This was my 1st year helping out at my school & it is a learning experience. I will know in a few weeks how successful we were but I think the key is organization, thinking outside the box as another member once posted & NOT making assumptions that certain local business would not want to help or be good donations. Every donation has a place. Good Luck : )
