Dear Mr. Parker,

On behalf of the Battered Women & Children’s Shelter, please accept our sincere thanks for your donations over the last several years. The toys we received during the Christmas Holiday and the care package shipment we received two weeks ago is greatly appreciated and needed.

Your gift allows us to restore lives and hope in the mothers and children who seek our assistance. Again, thank you for partnering with us in this very necessary and worthwhile effort.

We at the Battered Women and Children’s Shelter will be forever grateful for your generosity.
