Hello Fairway Golfers,

 

Last year this time we had completed our 76th annual Scholarship golf Tournament in which many of us made individual donations to help students in their quest for higher education.  This year I am asking you to consider an individual donation to Crayons to Classrooms. 

 

The coming school year is like nothing we’ve ever faced. Amid turbulent economic disruptions and an unprecedented global pandemic, the challenges facing students in need across the Dayton region have never been more significant. 

 

The need for school supplies in any year is substantial, but this year it’s even more so as students in many districts will not be able to share materials within classrooms. Add to that the need for supplies to support a blend of in school and at home online learning, students will need double the supplies. That means either many children will not have the tools they need or that teachers end up paying for necessary supplies out of their own pockets, placing an unfair, unnecessary and unsustainable financial burden on them.

 

The lack of basic school supplies for kids in need is a severe problem, but it’s also a solvable one. It is why Crayons to Classrooms exists and it’s why I’m emailing you today to ask for your help.  

 

Between August 12 – 21, Crayons to Classrooms is seeking to raise $75,000 to fund ongoing efforts to provide school supplies for every student who needs help. I’ve chosen to be a 2020 Classroom Champion, and I’m helping them raise these much-needed funds by reaching out to family, friends and respected colleagues to ask for help personally. Will you consider joining me in supporting Crayons to Classrooms by donating to this campaign? 

 

All donations directly benefit the students and teachers in our community, and no amount is too small. Most importantly, your donation will provide essential supplies for kids in need throughout our community. 

 

Attached is a copy of our 2018-2019 Annual Report for your information and use. A field is available to include my name as the Classroom Champion on the donation site below. Please visit www.dc2c.org to learn more and www.qtego.net/dc2c to donate today!

 

Thank you for considering this request and I am always willing to support your charitable endeavors.

Hello Fairway Golfers,

 

Thank you to those who have thus far contributed to this worthy organization.  This virtual fundraising campaign continues through August 21.  Growing us, most of us probably took for granted having the necessary school supplies. Many of the students in the Dayton area are far less fortunate.  Let’s help them. 

 

It’s back to school season across the Miami Valley. In a typical year, kids would be hopping on early morning busses, making new friends, and starting an exciting new year of learning. But this year, things are far from typical. As schools are announcing their plans for in-classroom and/or online learning, the challenge of getting school supplies in the hands of students in need across the Dayton region is significant.

 

It’s not just paper and pencils! This video highlights community teachers sharing the impact school supplies can have on a student’s success. 

 

We can help to support our students, our community to make it stronger. Will you consider joining me in supporting Crayons to Classrooms by donating to this campaign?

No amount is too small, and all donations directly benefit the students and teachers in our community. Most importantly, your donation will provide essential supplies for kids in need throughout our community.

 

Please donate today to give hope to their future at qtego.net/dc2c

Thank you for considering this request and I am always willing to support any of your charitable endeavors.
