16 x 6 = 462!

Posted by meganmoriarty on August 11, 2009

Okay, so my math skills are not that sharp, but I do know that 16 times 6 does NOT equal 462!

But, at the Glenmont Forest Apartments this weekend we made up our own math:

over the course of 6 hours, 16 door knockers knocked on 462 doors and had 102 one-on-one conversations

Pretty amazing, huh?

door knocking on saturday -- maria, chris, rosa, frankie, wendy and haile

Those conversations have already led to 6 appointments with Community Connectors at the Neighborhood Service Center for tomorrow.

Thanks to our new door knockers — Haile, Tiffany, Ana, Wendy, Elizabeth, Richard, Tatiana and Lucia.  Please share your reflections in the comments section!

The Campaign will be back door knocking on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Come join us!

    It was a powerful experience. It feels a little weird sometimes but it is those conversations with people who care or people in need that make me want to keep going.
    The door hangers are great. Do we know if any of the people that have contacted us after the campaign have done it because of the door hanger?
