Dear Mr. Cappelli:

We were pleased to receive your letter detailing the efforts of the Clean Break Foundation to fight drug addiction. We agree that one of the best ways to keep people off drugs is to give them other viable options. Your job training and placement program is accomplishing just that. And your ultimate goal to have participants run a cleaning business shows a real commitment to making your program an asset to the community.

It is our pleasure to support the Foundation with the enclosed check for $2,500. We hope this will help get your project off the ground and move you toward self-sufficiency.

We admire your dedication and energetic efforts you have displayed to the Clean Break Foundation. You have an excellent plan, and we are confident you will meet your goals.

Sincerely,

Dear Ms. Marsh:

We commend Wakefield Little League Association for providing the city’s youth summer recreation for so many years. Learning to be a part of a team is an important part of growing up. In fact, several of our employees learned that lesson as members of a Wakefield baseball or softball team when they were youngsters.

Marion Technology would be proud to sponsor two teams, one under-15 hardball and one under-15 softball, for the upcoming season. Enclosed is a check for $500 to cover the costs for both teams.

Thank you for teaching our children the joys of learning good sportsmanship. We look forward to rooting for Marion Technology’s teams this summer.

Sincerely,
