Dig Deep for SPAC
By Shearly Shawn
NAPS Auxiliary Capitol-Atlantic Area Vice President
Greetings from the Capitol-Atlantic Area Auxiliary. My name is Shearly Shawn; I am the new National Auxiliary Capitol-Atlantic Area vice president. I have the difficult task of taking over the position Skip Corley filled for so many years.
Anyone who went to an event hosted by the Capitol-Atlantic Area became Skip’s friend. He always made sure that registration was done properly and everyone reached deep in their pockets for SPAC. I know I can’t replace Skip, but I promise I will be me and put my best foot forward to do all I can to assist the Capitol-Atlantic Area family and NAPS family.
I had the pleasure of going to the Pennsylvania State Convention and helping the Pennsylvania Auxiliary with registration and raising money for SPAC. I was impressed with the number and quality of the baskets raffled—an idea to put in my toolbox going forward.
NAPS Capitol-Atlantic Area Vice President Troy Griffin has tasked me and the Auxiliary with ambitious goals for raising money for SPAC. We were not able to achieve the goal he set for the convention, but we reached one of the highest amounts ever. The total raised was $10,500 from a combination of 50/50 raffles, gift cards and basket raffles.
Through August, the Capitol-Atlantic Area was just slightly under $2,000 compared to all of last year. We will finish ahead this year—a non-election year. The Capitol-Atlantic Area is #2 in the area aggregate category (congratulations, Pacific Area, on an incredible year so far).
We are #4 in the area per capita category (again, congrats to the Pacific Area). In the Capitol-Atlantic Area, Maryland is #5 in state aggregate behind the four most populous states and #2 in per capita.
The Capitol-Atlantic Area also, so far, has 10 contributors in the President’s Ultimate level, with each of its states represented, along with the District of Columbia.
Remember, contributing to SPAC helps elect members of Congress who support the Postal Service’s supervisors, managers, postmasters and retirees. Keep on digging deep!
