Backpack Drive, Summer 2009

Jai Nandalala!

Hope you are all doing well.  This summer marks our third annual backpack drive and our goal is 50 backpacks.

For those of you who are not familiar with this, under auspices of the Nandalala Mission, local volunteers (comprising largely of school children) buy the supplies and then get together to get the backpacks ready for delivery to The Family Giving Tree which in turn distributes it to needy school children.

The Mission is looking for sponsors for these bags, and sponsorship for each bag is $30.00.

We are actively seeking sponsors for this event and would appreciate if you could sponsor one or more bags. Please e-mail me if you are interested in sponsoring and the # of bags you can sponsor. Checks should be made out to the Nandalala Mission and mailed to our address:

Nandalala Mission
1556 Halford Ave #319
Santa Clara. CA 95051.

We also seek volunteers who will be able to join us to get the backpacks ready with the supplies.  This will probably be done on Sunday, August 2. Please e-mail me if you are interested in volunteering.

Please feel free to forward this e-mail to your friends and family.
