12th Annual Dinner Fundraiser
I hope this letter finds you well. I am reaching out to you specifically because of your past generosity and support for FernCare Free Clinic, Inc. (FernCare). Unfortunately, in light of the COVID-19 crisis we have taken the prudent action of postponing our 2020 Annual Dinner, originally scheduled for May 21st.
While it makes sense to take this action, it does create some inherent difficulties for FernCare and its mission. During this crisis, FernCare has made a commitment to continue providing health care to those in our community who are uninsured. In addition, maintaining the health of our patients in this unique time costs more than it would otherwise (increased medical supply costs, providing greater supplies of maintenance drugs, etc). due to these circumstances, FernCare’s financial need is even greater than usual.
Taking into account these circumstances, I am asking you to consider your financial support of FernCare as you review how we combat this pandemic as a community. If you are able to, and can pay for your sponsorship now, as opposed to when we have a definitive 2020 dinner date, it would make all the difference in the world. Also, if you are able to offer any additional donations to FernCare, that would make a significant difference as well. Although we are shifting our fundraising schedule, our patients’ needs are now and will only continue to grow.
I have included another sponsorship package in this mailing (you may have already received one a few weeks ago). Again, thank you for your thoughtful consideration and generosity. On behalf of our patients, staff and volunteers I offer you our deepest gratitude for your continued support as we face new challenges.
Wishing you much happiness and health,
Executive Director, FernCare Free Clinic Inc.
