Community Support FIRST- Our Local Fundraising Efforts

Today, Cortechs Robotics took to the streets of Downtown Cary to ask local businesses for some support and fundraising for our team. We split into three teams, two teams took the downtown area, and the third team went asking local car dealerships for support. We came prepared with binders containing pictures and handouts of our monthly newsletter, and gave these to business owners and managers who were interested in donating. Although only a few businesses contributed, many were willing to consider us, and we are very thankful for what we received. Overall, this has been a learning experience for everyone, and we hope more local businesses will contribute in the future. Facebook Twitter Google+...
