We got several donations through the mail this week and then met some guys to pick up a donation.
The first donation comes to us from Charles J. Harris of La Porte, TX and it was loaded with great stuff!
The 2nd donation was from Angelo Mazzola of Stratford, CT and it was stuff with stuff like this -
The 3rd donation was from Bryan J. McCarter of Glen Allen, VA and it looks to be packed with some awesome football cards- haven’t gotten to sort them yet but look forward to it!
The final donation was more cards from Chad Kerr of Spokane, Washington. Mr. Kerr had one of his friends bring the cards with him and there were several boxes and two huge totes full of cards, some plaques of folks like Frank Thomas- it will take a while to get them all sort but they look pretty awesome as well!
Thanks to everyone for the donations and welcome to the #C4KFamily!!!
Brian and Ashley Rodney of Haverhill, MA sent us a three box donation. The donation was made in honor of the late Miles Rodney (12/15/1949 – 1/3/1993).
Mr. Rodney “was an avid collector of all things sports and took great pride in these cards. He would have been honored to pass along one of his most cherished hobbies to these children.”
It’s always special to receive donations like this because it’s truly passing down the hobby to children; we thank and welcome Brian and Ashley Rodney and Mr. Miles Rodney to the #C4KFamily!
This donation had a lot of amazing stuff that kids will love and I can’t wait to work everything into a future donation. I think I’m going to set back a lot of the stuff for our huge #C4KHalloween donation where we will be reaching over 1,000 kids!
First we got a bunch of hockey cards straight from Canada! Jason Chen of Vancouver, Canada stuff a bubble mailer full and sent them down to us!
Next up, Jeremy Berry sent these three graded cards from Patoka, Indiana! A DiMaggio 8.5!
Then our buddy from $30 A Week Habit (Robert Mitchell of New Castle, PA) stuffed a box full of cards and the pictures above are just some of the amazing cards! Tons of Frank Thomas, Griffey Jr, Derek Jeter….all the huge names!!!
And finally Scott and Cheryl Cornelius of Columbus, OH sent us a check to help out with our huge #C4KHalloween donation that we are working on- we need to buy 1,000 ziploc baggies and about 3,000 pieces of candy!
Thanks to everyone for all of the donations and welcome to the #C4KFamily!!!
Last nights donation with Wild Cat Championship wrestling was awesome! We donated about 45 bags of cards (4500) which was loaded with amazing stuff and we also gave away some WWE memorabilia cards, a Johnny Bench Lville Slugger and 2 tickets to the LIVE WWE show in April!
