The Hancock-Henderson Quill, Inc.

Letter to Editor

Dear Editor:

If you live in La Harpe and surrounding communities, you may have received the semi-annual Community Fund Drive envelope in your mail.

The Spring Fund Drive is a way to collect donations for the following: Hancock Co. Chapter of the American Cancer Society, Hancock County Heart Fund, Hancock County Volunteers for Diabetes, LaMoine Valley Chapter of the American Red Cross, St Jude Hospital and the Salvation Army.

The La Harpe Community Council tries to keep an updated listing of all residents for this mailing, but it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep the list accurate.

If you have not been receiving a Fund Drive Envelope you can still give by dropping off your donation at First State Bank of Illinois/La Harpe Office. (Donations are never late)

To be included in future mailings, you may contact Ada Hubbard, Arleen Gard or Jeanette Ford. (It is also expensive to do the mailing, so if you wish to have your name removed from the list please contact the same).

The La Harpe Community Fund Drive is also included in the State of Illinois SECA booklets, so you can donate through your payroll with a tax deductible donation if your employer offers this.

This Fund Drive provides an easy way for us to give as a community to a variety of very worthwhile organizations. You can be assured that the collected donations are all given in the name of the La Harpe Community.

Please consider giving through the Community Fund Drive.

Jeanette M Ford
