Imagine what a dollar can do!
From the CSS Website:
Catholic Social Services, Augusta, Georgia wants to thank you for checking out our Kids Who Care Program. We are hoping that we can add your name to the list of children who have donated a dollar to help us assist those families in need.
We recognize that there are children out there, just like yourself, who really care about others, but might not know how they can help. Every little bit helps, and your dollar, along with all the other dollars donated by kids all over the country, can help in many ways. It might allow a child to replace an old, worn out pair of shoes that no longer fits so that they can have a decent pair to wear to school, or provide them with a coat so they can stay warm in the cold, windy, winter months. A child's family might lose their home because a parent has lost their job, or become critically ill. Your dollar could help them pay the rent or house payment, keep their electricity on, or provide food for them until the parent can find another job. That $1.00 donation will enable us to purchase and give 5 pounds of food to a family. There are many unexpected things that can happen in people's lives that will cause them to need our help in getting back on their feet again.
We know you care about others or you would not have visited our website. If you would like to help other children whose families need our assistance, please wrap a dollar in a piece of paper. On that piece of paper write your name and address, put it in an envelope, and mail it to:
* Catholic Social Services
* Kids Who Care
* 811 12th Street
* Augusta, GA 30901
When we receive your $1.00 donation we will put your name, city and state on this web site so you can watch this program grow. Please pass this along to other kids whom you think might like to help. Together we'll use the power of the Internet to help others who are having a great deal of difficulty in their lives.
Thank you for caring, and God bless you and your family
