"corporate sponsor letter 2010"
Dear Corporate and Small Business Partners, We face many challenges in today’s generation, and Humboldt Park is no exception. Our community is threatened by drug addiction, homelessness, abuse and lack of education. Here at New Life Covenant we believe that there is hope for the future; however, that means taking responsibility. It is up to us to change our future. We have to be willing to take risks and dare to dream! The Chicago Dream Center directly meets the needs of our struggling community. For example, Bridge 2 Life serves meals to the homeless three nights a week. Manna for Life provides groceries to over 200 families in need every Saturday. The Axis Teen Center is a safe home where young girls obtain the tools they need to create a better future. Our women’s residential recovery has assisted hundreds of women to overcome life-controlling issues. Every day the Dream Center extends a helping hand to the hurting. The Chicago Dream Center is an independent 501(c)(3) under the umbrella of New Life Covenant. Together we are working to provide hope for our future. On May 14th, 2011 we desire to host another 5k/10k in Humboldt Park. We are expecting between 250-500 participants to Walk for a Dream, Walk for a Future in the Humboldt Dream Run. This spring, we hope to expand our mentoring and violence prevention programs to young men, ages 16- 21, providing them with an education to obtain skills and resources they need to succeed. In order to make this possible, we need community and corporate sponsors to step forward in solidarity with us. Please consider becoming a corporate or community sponsor! We have many options and incentives for those interested in supporting the event. You may make financial or goods-in-kind contributions directly to our organization, as your contribution may be tax-deductible. If you have any questions please feel free to contact one of our offices. We are looking forward to this year, as we anticipate the biggest turn out ever. Past partnerships have been a blessing to us, we look forward to deepening collaborative efforts further. Dream Big, Rev. Wilfredo De Jesus New Life Covenant 773.384.7113 Rev.
