Indo-American Friendship Forum Foundation (IAFFF) was formed 4 years ago to unite and strengthen current and future Indian-Americans and American communities by informing and educating Americans about India; fostering friendship and understanding between Americans of Indian origin and other Americans; and organizing, promoting, and participating in cultural and educational programs (to serve the Indian-Americans, Americans, and the greater communities)
For the past few months, we all have been witnessing worldwide devastation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We at Indo-American Friendship Forum Foundation have been monitoring the impact this pandemic is having on our local community. To help, we have been talking to elected officials and community leaders to identify areas of need. With a huge spike in people filing for unemployment insurance, officials estimate there will be a growing need for food assistance. Gov. Jay Inslee has called for more Washington residents and corporations to donate to help food banks across the state meet the growing need during the novel coronavirus outbreak.
After thought and discussion within our board, we have decided to help with the cause of alleviating hunger. To act immediately, we decided use our own funds to support the local charity Northwest Harvest, which is the only non-profit food bank distributor operating statewide in Washington.
We at IAFFF set a goal of contributing USD 10,000 to Northwest Harvest. In our last board meeting, we were able to raise $5000 from our board members. IAFFF board have also decided to reach out to our extended family members and friends to raise an additional $5000 for this cause.
I am appealing to you to support this cause by joining hands with us and donating money to IAFFF so that we can meet our goal of raising $10,000 for Northwest Harvest. Human hunger, especially in the richest nation on earth, is a disgrace. Let us come together to assist Northwest Harvest in their efforts.
To make your donation, you can either make your payment by mailing a check to IAFFF, 29329 3rd Ave SW, Federal Way, WA 98023 or via PayPal to email@example.com. If your employer has a Gift matching program, please take requisite steps to maximize your contribution. I would like to thank you in advance for your generous support and willingness to work with us to serve our local community in a small way.
