Coastal will do some local promoting such a local weekly newspapers, Internet, fliers and banners. We do except the charity to to do some of the promoting as well. If the material collected does not out weigh the expenses for the event i.e. employees, marketing insurance, others, we will not be able to donate funds. The more material we collect, then the more funds can be donated.
