Dear Villages Team Members,
Each of you spread love, every day, in the way you honor and care for The Villages’ children and families. The light and love you spread surpasses the need for an annual holiday reminding us to love one another. Yet as Valentine’s Day approaches, it’s impossible to think about love and caring hearts without first remembering EACH of you!
Your tireless dedication and daily efforts enable The Villages, Healthy Families Indiana, Children’s Village, Prevent Child Abuse Indiana, and Dads Inc. to serve more than 3,100 children every day, and more than 11,000 children, youth, and families each year! All because of the LOVE and POSITIVE IMPACT of your caring heart!
As a valuable partner in The Villages’ life-changing mission, you are sharing your time and your talents EVERY day! Today we’d like to also ask you to thoughtfully consider sharing a portion of your “treasures” with the children and families we’re all so honored to serve!
Your willingness to invest in the enrichment and emergency needs of the special youth and caregivers we serve helps us brighten their futures in even greater ways! A new pair of eyeglasses for a child who has broken their only pair provided this year; a bike for a foster child who recently moved into a new neighborhood with many kids his age; a tutor to close the education gap that is often seen from children in care; the fee for Driver’s Education; childcare support for a family balancing work and virtual learning are ALL needs that your generosity can help us fulfill!
We invite you to join us in supporting The Villages kids in this special way, either through payroll deduction or a one-time gift. We also want to honor the other ways you are going ABOVE and BEYOND to impact The Villages’ mission. So, this year you’re invited to play a game of February BINGO, as indicated on this BINGO Card. If you achieve a BINGO, use this link to share a picture of your completed card to be entered into a drawing for four (4) $25 VISA Gift Cards. Our payroll deduction will begin with the MARCH 19 paycheck, so we would love to receive your attached response card by WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 24TH. To save the credit card processing fee online or if you prefer pen and paper, you can share your ‘HEART FOR KIDS” by filling out the 2021 Response Donation Card instead of this form online! The amount that you give isn’t nearly as important as your willingness to give!
Each of you give SO TIRELESSLY to The Villages! Choosing The Villages as one of your personal charities sends a powerful message of commitment to our other donors!
Please accept our DEEPEST THANKS for YOUR HEART FOR KIDS! We hope you’ll join us!
