Senior Center needs your help

Dear Editor;

My name is Alice Hutchinson and I am affiliated with the Montesano Senior Center.

We have one major fundraiser each year, the Spring Fling, which will take place May 17, 2014. We are beginning to acquire auction items and donations for this event, with a goal of having April 30, 2014 as our deadline. We are a 501c organization and all donations are tax deductible. We would appreciate your assistance and will make sure that you receive documentation of your donation for tax purposes.

We currently have a budget of approximately $70,000, of that we generate about $30,000 in meal sales and the city of Montesano contributes $12,000. The remaining $28,000 is what we need to acquire through fund raising and private donations.

In 2009 we served 7,500 meals, in 2012 we served over 9,000 meals and in 2013 over 10,000. We feel we are meeting a need of our seniors in Montesano.

If you have any questions, please call me at (360) 249-4112.

We appreciate any help you can give us.

Yours truly,

Alice Hutchinson, Chairperson

Montesano Senior Center
