To the Editor:
As a Board Member for the Foundation of CVPH Medical Center, I am thrilled to be kicking off another year for our annual campaign drive. This is our biggest fundraising effort of the year where we ask North Country residents to support the health of your community. CVPH employees have already pledged $35,000, giving us a great start to our campaign goal of $200,000.
Part of what makes our campaign a success each year are the 50+ volunteers who willingly take on the task of asking their friends, business partners and contacts to join them in supporting the Foundation. This is no easy undertaking, but when you ask for something you believe strongly in and support yourself, the ask for the Foundation of CVPH becomes much easier.
As a team captain, I’m fortunate to have several people help me with the business of asking for gifts; many have volunteered for years. They do this because they believe in the mission of the Foundation and know they can make a difference in their family, friends’ and neighbors’ lives.
When you receive a letter asking you to support the Foundation of CVPH, I hope you will consider joining me and my fellow volunteers in improving health and wellness in our community.
