To the Members of the Bellingham Business Association,
The Backpack Drive was born two years ago from the ambition of Bellingham High School students to tangibly support the homeless as directly as they could. Each backpack contained hygiene products, non-perishable foods, hats, scarves, and gloves. Dozens of backpacks were handed out by students themselves to the homeless in DC during our yearly 8th grade trip to our nation’s capital. Later, students handed out the remaining backpacks in Boston. Again and again this experience has proved to be a rewarding, yet priceless cultural experience. In 2017, we expanded out program to include the provision of hygiene products to the Bellingham Food Pantry in order to help our own community members who are in need as well. This year, 2018, we hope to expand our outreach to the homeless youth of Boston.
While we are counting on the generosity of our students and families of our school, we need your help in accomplishing our goal of creating 125 backpacks and providing hygiene products to the needy in our community as well.
You can help by providing a gift card for a raffle being held to purchase needed products or you and your employees could provide items or a filled backpack. See attached list of items needed. Would you please consider helping us achieve our mission?
We thank you in advance for your support. Your donation would be greatly appreciated and will be used to help those in need. Items can be dropped off at the high school or we would be happy to stop by your establishment and pick them up for you. If you would like to donate a gift card, I have provided the address below. Please feel free to contact me at email@example.com or 508-335-3490. This drive will be held through the months of April and May.
