We are currently sending this letter out in hopes of donations to reach our goal for ASP. Feel free to read it. It will provide details about ASP and how to donate to help our cause.
Dear Friends and Family,
I am sending this to you because I am fund raising for a youth mission trip to Appalachia Service Project (ASP) on July 1 – 7,2012. ASP’s goalis to make homes warmer, safer and drier for needy families. Some of the projects my youth and I may be working on include insulating repairing roofs and many other tasks. For more information on ASP, you can go to asphome.org.
I am hoping through my experiences to learn about how others live, to be the hands and feet of God, and to show His love to this community.
For my youth group and me to participate it will require us to raise $4000. We have begun fund raising by selling Christmas holiday candy, Valentine’s Day candles and a “parent’s night out” babysitting. Currently we have raised approximately $1500. We are still in need of $2500. If you are able, any donation would be greatly appreciated. Please make checks payable to Red Valley UMC and put “youth” in memo. Please send any donations to me or to Red Valley UMC, 30 Red Valley Rd, Boones Mill, Va. 24065
Along with fund raising I am attending training and courses to prepare me for the challenges I will face. I am asking for your support through not only donation but through prayers.
