Urgent Community Need


Dear friend,

I don’t normally address you like this, but these are desperate times.

The coronavirus is hurting families in our neighborhoods. Read and Feed program participants are facing a critical need for basic necessities (things like  food, diapers, baby formula, and cleaning supplies). Your emergency gift will put these essential resources in the hands of those who need it most.

 But there is more. Every dollar you give, our Board and Advisory Council members will match. A $25 gift now becomes a $50 gift; a $50 gift now becomes a $100 gift. You get the idea.

Our goal is to raise $26,000 before Easter (April 12). The board has committed $13,000.  Will you help us raise the rest?  Your donation to this special campaign will be used to purchase gift cards to be distributed to our families as soon as possible.

Swift action is the key to this effort. By giving a secure gift now, you are putting a gift card in the hands of a family in need in time for Easter.

Thank you for your generous support during this time of extraordinary need.
