Updated financial report to Barb, Jim, Joni, Mike, Veda, and Victor and
Pat (I'm avoiding using last names to keep this data confidential):
So far we have received donations in the following amounts:
1 x 025 = 025
3 x 050 = 150
2 x 100 = 200
Total = 375
Of that total, I am still holding all the checks; I have not deposited
Meanwhile, I sent Ms. Becky, church clerk of PPBC, my check for
$175--the amount of the first four donations to come in--to encourage
them and let them know we were serious in our intent to help.
I waited several days, then called her and left a message on her
answering machine to let her know we'd sent that amount and that
another $200 would be forthcoming.
Ms. Becky called me this week (she'd been out of state visiting
relatives and hadn't gotten the message I'd left her). She had
not yet received the card with my check for $175, but said when it came
she would hold it until she and her daughters can start the copying
process and/or locate the former set of copies PPBC sent to their state
headquarters several years ago.
I am holding the other $200 at her request. If they can locate
the former set and can make it accessible to us, then she will return
our $175 and let us make the copies (she thinks I can do it cheaper
than they can).
If not, I'll send my check for the remaining $200 and deposit all your
Bottom line: no one's check is deposited yet, and further copying is
pending results of the above investigations.
Updated reports to follow as we learn more.
