Dear Angels of Richstone,
Close your eyes and count to 10…every 10 seconds there is a case of child abuse reported in the United States. Every 9 seconds a case of domestic violence. Child abuse and domestic violence are critical issues facing our community. It gravely impacts children and families. In Los Angeles, we have seen a 25% increase in child abuse incidents reported by school districts in our service area. The demand for our services is increasing and we have a growing wait list!
The support of you, our Angels of Richstone, over the years has made an incredible difference in the services we provide to the community. This last year, we served more than 3,500 vulnerable children and families. This would not have been possible without you. I am humbled by the astonishing work of our staff, volunteers, and supporters.
Today, I am asking you to advance our the cause and make a contribution to Richstone. You will help us meet the demands of our community and make a difference in the lives of our children and families. We need to give them a chance for a productive and healthy life!
Thank you for being an Angel to our children!
Roger Van Remmen
