BENEFITING: HANDY DANDY HANDYMAN CO
Dear Friends, Family, Associates, and clients of the Handy Dandy Handyman Non-Profit Ministry,
For the past 16 years HDHM has been helping Seniors, Divorced, Widowed, Single Parents, Handicapped, Homeless, Recovering Addicts, and Unemployed with the assistance of 2,200 volunteers serving over 1,000 families in the Greater Danbury Area and neighboring communities.
Upon retirement from Nestle Foods Feb 28, 2000 at age 58, Carol Ann and I decided to give back to the Lord all he has bestowed on our lives and we would help the many less fortunate in our community. Over the 16 year span HDHM has received 18 very impressive awards (see attached) from many prestigious organizations as well as appearing on National TV NBC Nightly News "Making a Difference" segment.
Dilemma: Due to financial constraints, we are now facing extinction having 4 months of funds to support our mission statement of "Helping those in need maintain their dignity, self esteem, and/or physical well being."
Having come this far and being of sound mind and body, we would very much like to continue our mission but will need financial help to do so as we are unable to self fund from my family retirement savings.
Commencing today and continuing for the next few months we are reaching out to you for any (One Time) generous donation in support of our important work which includes but not limited to the Rake n Bake, Home Make Overs, Locating homes for the homeless and furnishing them, Christmas shows for the Senior Living facilities, Danbury/Brookfield Book Sales set up, buying food the the single parents with children with limited funds, and locating free power driven scooters for the handicapped, and much more.
If your employer has a matching program by all means it would help us as well. I would welcome the opportunity to apply to any grant program you may be associated with in your business dealings.
