Foothill Knolls News...
The 2016 Foothill Knolls Adopt-A-Family for the Holidays, our traditional Charity Drive, is ready to start, thanks to your past generosity and your pledges to support it. Last year this effort was possible thanks to 22 generous and caring families from our neighborhood. Thank you for opening your heart again this year to help others in need!
So you have time to take advantage of sales and promotions, we are contacting you a bit earlier. This will help us get an idea of who would like to join and contribute (repeats and newcomers are equally welcome and much appreciated), so we can see how many families we can help.
Last year, thanks to your kind heart, your donations supported local low income families who subscribed to the Catholic Community Of Pleasanton Giving Three, and to a drive coordinated by Valley View Elementary School.
Your response to this email will allow us to know how many low income families with children we might be able to help this year. We will reach the Church and schools, soon (starting this weekend) once we know how many of you would like to participate, and will be able to share more details about the needs specific families you will be helping.
ASAP: Please contact us if you would like to be part of this year’s Adopt-A-Family program
November 10: Adopt-A-Family- Charity Drive starts (Hope you can join us!)
November 14: Detailed information will be sent to neighbors about families to be adopted
December 3-4: Donations will be collected
Week of December 5: Donations will be distributed
Please respond ASAP by contacting me firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know if you are willing to make a difference again this year. If you would like to continue in the same group you were before or be part of a new one and get to know your neighbors closer, please let us know. We will be as flexible as possible to ensure you have the best experience while helping others. Thank you in advance for supporting local families in need.
Foothill Knolls Charity Drive
PS. From past efforts, we know that parents usually ask for basic stuff to meet their basic needs: blankets, jackets, sweatshirts, towels, warm pajamas, underwear, socks, scarves, or gift cards from stores to purchase clothes or food. Kids want what all kids want. We can all help without the pressure of getting everything, but at least a couple of items per individual. We will provide you with more information when you respond. We hope we can count on you this year!
