First Local Outreach Trip / by Christine Boles

    Today was our first local outreach trip, which was more fun than we had originally imagined. A team of eleven members went out into the neighborhood to talk to businesses about our team and being potential sponsors. We received a lot of enthusiasm, interest, and positive feedback from the businesses. This promises not only donations, but more involvement with our team and the community. Although most of our efforts were fruitful, we inevitably came across a few obstacles. A few of us got lost among all the warehouses, but eventually came back to d.tech. From this we learned that we should definitely do some research before going out, and maybe bring a map or GPS with us! Next week, we're planning to follow-up on some of the businesses, so we'll update on when that happens!
