Dear [Recipient’s Name]:

I’m looking forward to participating in this year’s Great Food Walk, which is Nashoba GFW, Inc.’s major annual fundraiser. The walk benefits Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry and Sharing, Inc. (90% and 10%, respectively). As you are probably aware, Loaves & Fishes is the food pantry in Devens that serves Ayer, Devens, Dunstable, Groton, Harvard, Littleton and Shirley. Loaves & Fishes helped feed over 800 families last year and the need remains high. Sharing, Inc. supports people and organizations working in the rural south who are positively impacting the lives of African American children who suffer the effects of racism and poverty.

I’m happy to do my part to support Nashoba GFW’s efforts, which is why I’m so thrilled to be walking in this event [again]. I’m writing to ask for your support as a sponsor. Please consider donating to Nashoba GFW as one of my sponsors. Together, we can make a difference for our neighbors in need.

Simply call or email me to let me know what amount you’ll be able to pledge. If you’d prefer to handle this all at once, send me your check, made out to GFW or contact me to arrange to donate cash.

Nashoba GFW and Loaves & Fishes depend on the generosity of individuals like you to fund their work in our community and Sharing, Inc. depends on our collective generosity for their mission in the communities they serve.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and generosity.
