Dear Charities Staff,
This month we have tested 59 Idaho children for diabetes markers as part of the National Institutes of Health TrialNet study. Preparations are in full swing for Sweet Kids Day Camp coming up next month. Last month we delivered nutrition/childhood obesity prevention education to parents of children in local kindergarten-readiness programs. In August, we will begin scheduling school programs.
Your donation of $2,000 helps make all these children's programs possible in Boise, Meridian, Nampa, and Caldwell, Idaho. Thank-you very much, especially to Mandi Moore (Caldwell) on our local grants committee and Natalie Summers (Boise) who delivered the check yesterday.
Natalie's timing was perfect. We had just reviewed our children's budget a week ago and had made plans to cut back programs if funding did not come through. Then Natalie came through the door yesterday, with a gift that you have all made possible, even in these hard times.
We are grateful. Thank-you again.
