To Our Benevolent Community Stakeholders;
This holiday season, we all gather with friends and
family to celebrate the spirit of goodwill, compassion and appreciation
for one another. We reflected on the past in anticipation of the
future. Many remember good times and prosperity, however, those that are
not so fortunate wonder how their lives fell apart and how it resulted in
their unexpected homeless state.
As we sit down to our holiday celebrations, I ask you to remember our homeless
neighbors, especially those whom are isolated without a place to share with
others, or to call "home." The holiday season is particularly
difficult for those who are estranged from their families. Yet year after year
I witness the benevolence of our community when it comes to delivering gifts to
our young during the festive holiday season. However, homeless veterans will be overlooked simply because many of us don't think of adults who might be needy, homeless and quite possibly overlooked during the holidays. I am making a personal appeal on behalf of these honorable veterans in hope that we will consider including them on our gift lists so they will not be "left behind" once again and go through the holidays without recognition for their honorable service to our country.
Please contact Jeff Luddeke (813) 352-7856 to make a donation to a deserving
veteran this holiday season. Your donation is completely tax-deductible and you
will be helping veterans who have already made many sacrifices for our sake and the freedom that we enjoy in America today.It is only through partnerships that we are able to strengthen our community by providing these deserving veterans with some of the basic resources and services that will make a positive difference in their future.
Let us remember that only two defining forces have ever offered to die for you
- Jesus Christ and the American soldier, one died for your soul; the other died
for your freedom. We all wish you and your family a safe, happy and peaceful and prosperous New Year. Contact Jeff Luddeke at (813) 352-7856 or Connie
Blaney (813) 900-9422. With your assistance, we can make this holiday season one that will be remembered for years to come.
