Hi, my name is Danielle Vargo. I have completed 31 marathons in my running career. This will be my second year to run the Boston Marathon, and again this year I will be running to support Family Aid Boston. As a member of the 2017 Family Aid Boston team to run the John Hancock Boston Marathon, I was able to raise $11,500 and help the team to a record $142,000 in donations.
I would like to be part of another record-setting team again this year, and I need your help. As a registered nurse, I know that one of the pillars of a stable family life lies in the importance of having adequate shelter. In the past 4 years, there has been a 34% increase in homeless families in the Boston area. This is the main reason why I have once again chosen to support Family Aid Boston in its mission -
"TO PREVENT AND END HOMELESSNESS, ONE FAMILY AT A TIME."
Every year, Family Aid Boston serves nearly 800 families, including 1500 children. On any given night, they provide shelter and housing to 280 families. Over 90 cents of every $1 donated goes directly toward helping homeless children and their families. This is a strong testament to the dedication and efficiency of this very worthwhile organization.
Please open your hearts and give generously so that we may both help the homeless children and their families in the Boston area and all of Massachusetts. Don't forget to ask your employer if they have a company match so that your caring and compassion goes even farther!
Thank you in advance for your support and generousity.
