Thank you to the generous, committed Democrats in Downers Grove Township who have made special donations to fund and supply our new headquarters at 906 Curtiss Avenue, just east of Washington Street in Downers Grove. Because of the generosity of all those who have contributed, we have been able to pay rent through the November election. Our strong commitment is to use special donations for this headquarters, so that we can continue to support our great local candidates with our regular budget. This office gives us needed space to organize canvasses, phone banks, literature collating, sign distribution, post card writing and more. Because of our great location right in town, it is also a great way to promote visibility of our candidates and our organization.
Our new office has been well furnished by those who have lent us tables, chairs, lamps, shelves, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and decorations. We think it is shaping up really well into a great campaign headquarters. We hope all our friends and supporters will stop in to write some postcards, get a walk list, or just drop by to chat. Of course a great opportunity to check out our new place will be our Grand Open House on June 4 between 4:00 and 6:00.
If you have not yet contributed to our Office Fund, we can still use your help, in whatever amount is comfortable for you, to pay for utilities and supplies. You can contribute by sending a check payable to DGTDO to P.O. Box 785, Downers Grove 60515. Or, even better, stop in on a Friday evening, Saturday morning, or Sunday afternoon to give us your donation personally and see what a great new space we have to facilitate our strong DGTDO grass roots efforts to elect Democrats up and down the ballot.
