Box of Balloons

October Newsletter

Happy Fall Y'all!

Pumpkins, candy corn, brisk air and hot apple cider, hmmm, all my fall favorites! Another one of my favorites...seeing Box of Balloons grow, spread and serve those in need.

Are you ready, get ready, there is lots of news to share!

On the News

Box of Balloons was on the news this weekend, NBC 15! Amy Carlson was the sweetest person and so supportive of our mission. We already have added 10 new volunteers to the team in the last 24 hours, yay!

Box of Balloons has two more tv interviews lined up this month to share our mission with the community and need for volunteers.

The Great Pumpkin Run was successful and the weather was perfect. There were over 800 runners and many spectators. We added a handful of volunteers to our team and raised close to $400 at the event!

Have you ordered your Box of Balloons tee yet? Please do! This is a fantastic way for us to get our name out there and to raise some funds. The bigger we get, the more boxes we fill and communities we expand to the more organizational costs we have. All the proceeds from these tees go directly to BOB and our funding needs. You can purchase on our website or send us an email. Click HERE to purchase a BOB tee!

Box of Balloons is expanding!!!
