Letters of Gratitude


Dear 2-1-1 Tampa Bay Cares:

"I cannot express the words to thank you for what you have done for my family.  I greatly appreciate the help; you have no idea the stress that has been relieved because of the help you got for me, my daughter, husband and little boy.  When I told my husband, it brought tears to his eyes.  You and your organization have given so much to help us and I thank you for really going out of your way to help us in our time of financial need."
--Amanda

Dear 2-1-1 Tampa Bay Cares:

"The purpose of this letter is to let you know what a blessing the 2-1-1 program has been for my family.  My daughters are 15, 16 & 17 and are hard workers in school.  My oldest is   co-band President, Assistant Drum Major and percussion section leader at her school.  She puts her best foot forward in all her projects.  She has two younger sisters, one is 15 and one 16.  Both younger girls are also working hard in school and with their music. 

However, I've noticed the negative impact our financial difficulties have had on the girls since father's career crises hit.  

It's my goal to keep them optimistic that things will get better and in the mean time we will safely survive.

This season of life will pass and our family will be able to tell the world you and your services helped us survive it.

Thank you from the bottom of all our hearts and I promise I am teaching the girls to pay it forward."
