Dear In Every Story supporters:
I am pleased to announce that we officially worked our first job as a maintenance crew at the Coastal Carolina Fair. The job brought success and opportunities to make adjustments. In addition to what our workers would have earned working at a for-profit agency, one earned an additional $55 towards his water bill and another $45 towards his electric payment. At the same time, we are taking a step back to consider what we can do to create a culture that retains and supports our clients as well as to enhance our product so that it is truly a notch above our competitors. We are also raising money for the bare minimum to compete with for-profit agencies. Since we have had early success and our business plan is on track and its execution under budget, please think about rewarding us with your contribution.
Over the past month, $8,500 has been donated to IES. Our goal is $12,000. This money will be used to purchase a used van, create a professional website and hire an additional staff member who will deal with inside issues while I pursue business. As you may recall, one of our goals is to be self-sustaining. However, we need necessities before we can pursue larger contracts.
The future is bright. There is potential for contracts with the City of Charleston and Charleston County. Most important, our workers are excited. Please consider making a tax deductible securities or cash donation to help this business and social enterprise continue to succeed.
