Today's Friday Feedback is going to be a little bit different. I'm recording this on Thursday afternoon before our one-day drive is over and so I don't have any final totals to give you for it. I hope our announcers will be able to give you that. I'm going to just take a look at some of the comments that were made and read them, kind of at random :-)

Thanks to all who made contributions and comments during our one-day fund drive. We really appreciate your support. We know that Habitat for Humanity appreciates your support as well as the support from Builders FirstChoice of Wilmington.
