Dear Sir or Madam,
We need your generosity this Christmas to help bring joy to at-risk children in central Santa Ana. Through your participation in KidWorks’ 14th Annual Christmas Store event, you will ensure that over 400 children from low-income families have a very merry Christmas.
As many of you know, the Christmas Store was born out of the realization of supporters like you that for the families living in the at-risk neighborhoods of Santa Ana, Christmas can often be a painful season. Many families are in a desperate financial struggle – and have had to rely on free handouts, which can be embarrassing for parents. To help restore dignity, donors like you make it possible for KidWorks to host a toy-store where parents can shop for their child’s gifts at a very affordable price, just 10-20% of the actual retail value. The small proceeds from the store go into a benevolence fund that helps meet some of the emergency needs of families we serve during the Christmas season and beyond.
Will you consider hosting a toy drive to stock the KidWorks Christmas Store with gifts for the children in central Santa Ana?
If you want to be involved, simply place a box at work, your local church, or with your community group to collect new, unwrapped toys between now and December 9th. You can promote your toy drive using the enclosed flier. We will arrange to pick-up toys on December 7th-9th between 10am – 3pm, or they can be dropped off at KidWorks anytime before the morning of December 13th.
Please contact Melissa at (714) 834-9400 ext. 115 or firstname.lastname@example.org to get more information or to let us know that you are hosting a toy drive. Thank you for your support of the children of Santa Ana, and Merry Christmas!
