Dear Members of the Mission/Community Committee,
I am writing to update you on the $1,200 in scholarship funds you donated to our organization this past June.
Six children were able to receive assistance due to your generosity. Four of the families reside in the Williamsville Central School District and two in the Sweet Home Central School District. All have household incomes of less than $29,999. At least one of the families represents an active domestic violence situation. Two of the families are continuing to face chronic underemployment. One family represents a single parent going back to school. Each family that received assistance was able to contribute a small portion of the cost of care.
Because of your gift, these children were able to participate in a quality summer day camp/childcare experience and continue to be served in our afterschool programs this fall. We truly appreciate your understanding of the need for such services and your willingness to provide support for these families. Because of you, parents know that their children are safe and cared for, leaving them to focus on issues of employment, education and self-help. You are indeed making a difference in the lives of children and families in the Town of Amherst!
