Dear Laila Rose Supporters:
We pray that this letter finds you and your family safe, healthy, and enduring the uncertain times that our nation is currently in. The Laila Rose Foundation Board of Directors has thoughtfully considered and reconsidered the viability of having our annual fundraiser this year, and it is with a heavy heart that we inform you that we will not have an event in 2021. Our army of contributors are primarily small businesses owners, many of which have been impacted adversely by current events. Our hearts and prayers go out to them and we ask for your continued support to them and all small businesses in our communities nationwide.
Please be assured that the Laila Rose Foundation continues to serve those in need in many ways. Applications for assistance are still being accepted, we are helping families with monies from past donations, and we are helping families with debt reduction assistance and guidance in regard to other available means of assistance.
Your contributions have allowed us to raise and distribute over $40,000 annually, help over 80 families, including 5 families already in 2021. That generosity is appreciated beyond words and the need still exists. We ask that you continue to support the foundation and our mission and donate if you are blessed to do so.
We will be having a week long donation drive beginning May 7th. Our goal is to raise $4,500! We hope you will consider making a generous contribution so we can continue our support to families of children with medical needs.
Thank you and God Bless,
Patty Engh, Director
