Dear Friends,This is the Helping Hands Clinic’s request for matching funds. They are, IMHO, one of the most effective programs in Gainesville. Those people who would like to direct their donations for assistance to homeless women can earmark them for Duffy’s Heart Fund, which was established in memory of a young homeless woman who took her own life, and provides special assistance to homeless women. Thank you so much.arupaDear Friends and Supporters,
I am writing on behalf of Helping Hands Clinic to ask for your help once again. Due to the great response to our $15,000 donation-match challenge last year we were able to provide 2,021 clinic visits to 522 different individuals through our Monday and Thursday night medical clinics. In addition, 586 women attended our Women’s Health Program, with 1695 visits. The women’s program continued to offer a nutritious meal, clothing, showers, hygiene products, and education programs in a safe and supportive environment. The year saw a 19% increase in volunteers joining our efforts. The monetary value of these volunteers was estimated at $532,242. We are extremely grateful for both the dedication of our volunteers and the support we have received from you.
We are pleased to announce that once again we have been provided with the support to offer our third donation match challenge. Our volunteer donor has pledged to match the first $15,000 donated to the Clinic by December 25th. These funds will be used to provide both administrative and clinic support to program operations. Donations by check can be made to the Helping Hands Clinic and mailed to the:
Helping Hands Clinic
2603 NW 13th St #306
Gainesville, FL 32609
Donations can also be made through the Pay Pal option on our web site: www.hhcg.org . Please take a few minutes to view that site, including the video on the opening page. We have sent this appeal letter both electronically and by mail. If you’d like to be added or removed from our e-mail or physical mailing list, feel free to drop us a note or e-mail at: helpinghandsclinic@....
We will be very thankful for your continued support during this exciting time of growth.
Please feel free to forward this letter to anyone who you feel would be interested in supporting the Helping Hands Clinic.
Randy Stacey, MSW
Director, Helping Hands Clinic
