Dear Angel Volunteer,

One of my very favorite things to do at Angel Foundation is reading the many letters and cards sent by adults with cancer we help through our programs. With each reading, I am reminded anew how very important our work is, and how many people are counting on us and truly are grateful for providing them with emergency financial assistance, education and support.

And of one thing I am certain: We could not do it without you, our dedicated volunteers. Because of your generous donation of time and talent, we are able to funnel 75 percent of every dollar donated into our programs, to directly benefit cancer patients and their families. (This beats the Charity Review Council ‘s standard of 70 percent.) That means you are helping more people get the vital services and assistance we provide. I can’t tell you how important you are!

I am so appreciative of every one of our volunteers, as are all of us at Angel Foundation, that we would like to take an evening to celebrate you. Please consider this your personal invitation:

Please join me and the Angel Foundation staff for a

Volunteer Appreciation Potluck Party,

Monday, Aug. 19, 6 to 9 p.m.

Moir Park, Bloomington

Please bring a dish to share, and we’ll supply the rest – more food, games, prizes, and, as always, our appreciation for the great work you do.

Please RSVP to Kristin, or (612) 627-9000; let her know number of attendees in your party (families welcome!) and what food item you will bring. We will follow up with you in the coming month to keep you posted.

I am so looking forward to this night, and I hope you can join us!

Meanwhile, thank you, thank you for all you do for Angel Foundation and the people we serve.

Best wishes,

Margie Sborov
