SMAC! Monkey Packaging Party
In July, we packaged more than 230 SMAC! monkeys in my garage. When I put out the initial call for help, the awesome girls at Jobs Daughters Bethel #1 of Papillion, Nebraska jumped at the chance. They were incredible and I can’t thank them enough. My Mom, Leslie Lehrman, the inspiration behind the creation of SMAC!, was definitely there in spirit.
We did also land some nice local TV news coverage of our packaging party. Here’s are links to KETV’s Channel 7’s story and Action 3 News’ story if you’d like to check them out.
