“Dear Hazelwood,

As we look forward to 2020, many think of the opportunities to set new goals and resolutions. For more than 65,000 food-insecure individuals in East Central Indiana, however, the start of a new year may mean choosing between different necessities, whether it be food, heat, or medical care. With your help, we can provide our neighbors with help for today and hope for tomorrow.

We are so grateful for your gift of $200 to Second Harvest Food Bank. Your donation will help provide East Central Indiana Hoosiers with food and resources, making their lives less stressful in 2020. Your generosity is not only helping provide immediate food relief but also the development of long-term stability for families in our community.

Thank you again for making a difference in the lives of those we serve.


~Tim Kean, President & CEO, Second Harvest Food Bank


“Dear Hazelwood Christian Church,

We here at YWCA Central Indiana were so honored to receive your $200 contribution. Every day your contribution helps to provide advocacy and shelter services for women and children throughout Central Indiana. Food, hygiene products, bedding, health and wellness, economic empowerment, and other essential services aid those we serve as they begin the transition from crisis living to self-sufficiency.

YWCA Central Indiana is on a mission to create real change. Thank you for joining us as we endeavor to continue eliminating racism, empowering women, and assisting those without a home to call their own.

Once again, we say thank you. Our staff and residents sincerely appreciate being able to count on your support.


~WaTasha Barnes Griffin, CEO, YWCA Central Indiana


“Dear Hazelwood Church,

Thank you so much for your generous donation of $200 in 2019 to the Whitely Community Council.

On behalf of our residents and the Whitely Association Board of Directors I would like to thank you for your generosity. Your gift will help in the fight against food insecurities, low reading test scores, and other effects of poverty on the families we serve. While all of us are susceptible to hard times, children and the elderly are at the most risk, and they make up the largest number of residents we serve.

We can’t thank you enough for your generosity in 2019, but we can guarantee that your gift will be used in the most responsible way. Please consider sending a gift to support our goals in 2020.

Thank you again, and we look forward to your continued support.


~Ken Hudson, Executive Director, Whiteley Community Council
