In an effort to have a more coordinated campaign, St Jude has created web links for each individual District. Please only use the link provided by St. Jude Children’s Hospital: 3rd District - OPPF. I am proud to see that this Year’s effort is one Team with one purpose for the Mighty Third District, and I know that you and the Brothers of the Third District will help to lead in the campaign, as you have in the past. If you find a need to track your Chapter’s progress, you can identify them by name, or as they make an online donation, instruct them to put the respective chapter's name beside their name. Either method will provide you with a mechanism for tracking donations that are being made on behalf of your chapter. Please feel free to call or write if I can be of further assistance, or you can contact Brother Jeff Tarpley [(804) 370-2381; firstname.lastname@example.org] who is a member of the Third District Social Action Committee, and is once again leading the campaign.
