On Thursday, August 2nd, celebrations began around the state to honor the 44th President of the United States for his 51st birthday. Young Professionals gathered at OFA-SC headquarters to learn more about how to become actively engaged in President Obama’s re-election campaign. On Friday, events included an ice cream social and a phone bank to identify supporters. Saturday was the grand finale with events statewide for the President’s birthday including a fish fry and phone bank sign up for the following week. Supporters signed a birthday card as well as pledges explaining how they will help the President get re-elected in November.
Many volunteers are fired up and ready to make phone calls in South Carolina to assist our northern neighbor. If you haven’t joined the 9-3-1 program, get started today because this opportunity is over on August 18th. The program is a fun way for South Carolina supporters to earn seats at the Democratic National Convention to see President Obama accept the nomination in September. Here’s how it works:
- Volunteer for a total of nine (9) hours
- That is three (3) completed shifts
- For one (1) chance to attend the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte
By making phone calls, canvassing, and registering voters, we are making a significant impact in this campaign. Take the 9-3-1 pledge today!
