      To: Friends & Businesses who support Literacy,

      Hello! We are the Hoopa Tribal Even Start Program. The Even Start
      program is a comprehensive Family Literacy project through the California
      Department of Education. Program services for families are: Adult Basic
      Education, GED Prep, GED, Family Time, Parent and Child Interactive Literacy
      Activities, Child Literacy activities and tracking of Child and Adult
      progress to better serve their needs.

      At this time our program is requesting donations or contributions from
      indivduals and businesses for the ongoing bank of prizes that our families earn. Our
      program funds were cut drastically for FY 2003/2004, which caused the line item
      for prizes to be cut. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

      A summary of how our families earn prizes is: each family has a punch
      card, every meeting, and/or conference attended through our program they earn
      a punch on their card. After two months, prizes are placed on tables
      with numbers from 1-30, in prize categories. Families choose prizes by how
      many punches they have on their card.

      We are a low-income poverty stricken community. Sometimes the prizes
      are the only positive gift families have received for years. Our program
      has found the prizes to be a positive motivator for families coming to the
      program more frequently, which enhances their learning more rapidly.

      Please embrace this letter, and if there is a possibility there is a
      donation or contribution from you or your organization it will be
      greatly appreciated.

      Have a wonderful day!

      Sincerely,

      Jacqueline J. Marshall
      Even Start Manager
