Dear Contact at Company (use first and last name),
We're so proud to live and work in COMMUNITY NAME. I believe that we're blessed to live in a community full of truly good neighbours. The definition of being a good neighbour is showing interest in the wellbeing of the people in our community.
I'm writing to you from the local feeding program and I can tell you that support from our neighbours in this community is vital to our success. Each day we help feed XX children XX meals! For one reason or another, these children arrive at school without enough food to eat.
Some parents are going through a temporary financial crisis, other parents can't make ends meet at the end of the month. There are lots of reasons children in Australia come to school hungry. In fact, one in six children in Australia lives in poverty; and we know that where there is poverty, there is hunger. Our program needs your help.
We are asking our neighbours in the community to provide assistance in whatever ways they can. The local grocery store is providing us with milk and fruit. The business store is providing us with free fax and photocopy services. We are in desperate need of a new fridge.
I know you're in the moving business and you might come across a suitable fridge for us in your line of work. If that doesn't seem likely, we're always grateful for volunteer help, cash donations, and word-of-mouth support.
You may not know the names of the neighbours you'll be helping, but they will know your generosity. Communities that actively participate in creating solutions to the problems that affect them become strong communities.
Strong communities benefit everyone. We're a non-profit group committed to working with the community to reduce child poverty, reduce chronic hunger, and to develop hope in the hearts of children in our midst.
No one stands alone in this community. We are doing what we can to help. Can we count on your help?
Please call us and let us know you'll be looking out for that fridge we need, or however you're choosing to help us. All the help you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
