One Call for All starts on Bainbridge | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

The One Call for All Red Envelope Campaign is off and running — we have already received more than $160,000 in generous donations this year to support the island through the amazing nonprofits in our community.

We can’t thank you enough for all that you do by sending in your donations. Thank you to everyone who has already made their gifts this year. Please follow the lead of the more than 400 families on the island that have already given — and send in your envelope soon.

Last year we raised more than $1 million for our island support services (1,643 donors made gifts). Let’s continue the support and raise $1 million this year, too!

Each donation makes a difference – no gift is too small, and the more families that give, the better we all are.

Every family on the island is touched in some way by One Call for All. If you have a child in preschool or childcare center; if you appreciate the emergency services and volunteer firefighters; if you have school-aged children, whether private or public school; if you enjoy our parks, public lands, farms, community centers, or library; if you have a senior citizen in your life or are one yourself; if you or your loved ones need support in any way — YOU are part of One Call for All.

If you need a Red Envelope, you can pick one up at an island Columbia Bank or at the Bainbridge Library. A special thanks to the Bainbridge Review for the insert last week that shares the stories of One Call for All in our community — there is a donation form included in this as well.

On behalf of all of the organizations that are part of One Call for All, thank you for giving to your community. We are blessed to live in a place that is so generous in every way.

As we are proud to say — WE LIVE HERE — WE GIVE HERE. Please join us by making your gift today!
