One more chance to help us this year

Dear Friend,

What a year! One of the things that made us at The Wish Project proudest this year is that we never fully shut our doors because of COVID. The need for our assistance did not stop – in fact this is when our clients need us most, and we have been there for them. We can be there for our community only because of your support. With a different kind of holiday season ahead of all of us, we need your support more than ever.

Please consider further supporting your community and The Wish Project as 2020 comes to a close with a tax-deductible gift. I can promise you that your gift will make a tremendous difference.

Your gift helps support our amazing staff of nine who have worked even harder to compensate for the thousands of volunteer hours that we lost because of COVID, our now small (but amazing!) core volunteers, and most importantly our clients.

Here is one example of how we made a difference in our community. At the beginning of June, we received a call from a pregnant Mom whose pregnancy had been determined to be high risk. Plans were made to deliver her baby in just two days – three weeks early. Because of the short notice, she was not as prepared as she expected to be. Within the day we gave her a car seat, a newborn basket, diapers, baby wipes, and toiletries, as well as cleaning products to keep her home safe for herself and her baby. She went to the hospital the next day and gave birth to a beautiful son named Michael.

As the year 2020 comes to a close, we continue to be humbled and grateful for the support that the community has shown for The Wish Project. We are truly making a difference.

Thank you for remembering us in your tax-deductible end-of-year giving.

With gratitude,

Alyce Moore, Executive Director

The Wish Project

P.S. If you have given to The Wish Project in 2020, we thank you very much for your support!
