GREETINGS FROM THE ST. HELENS SKATEPARK COMMITTEE.

THE ST. HELENS SKATEPARK COMMITTEE IS A VOLUNTEER ORGANIZATION RESPONSIBLE FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A 12,000 SQUARE FEET CONCRETE SKATEPARK WITHIN THE MUNICIPAL PARK SYSTEM.  ST. HELENS IS LOCATED 28 MILES NORTH OF PORTLAND, OREGON AND HAS A POPULATION OF APPROXIMATELY 10,000. THE PARK WILL BE TURNED OVER TO THE CITY OF ST. HELENS UPON ITS COMPLETION THIS OCTOBER.

THE PROJECT HAS A BUDGET OF $200,000. THROUGH YOUTH FUNDRAISING, COMMUNITY OUTREACH AND IN-KIND DONATIONS WE ARE WITHIN $12,000 OF ACCOMPLISHING THIS GOAL.

FRANKLY, WE HAVE “TAPPED OUT” LOCAL RESOURCES FOR FUNDING. WE DO, HOWEVER, HAVE A FINAL FUNDRAISER PLANNED, WHICH WE HOPE WILL TAKE CARE OF THE FINANCIAL DEFICIT AND ALLOW US TO CONCENTRATE ON CONSTRUCTION.  OUR PLAN IS TO HAVE A HUGE RAFFLE OF SKATEBOARDS AND RELATED GOODS, SELLING TICKETS AT SKATEPARKS AND SKATE SHOPS WITHIN ST. HELENS AND THE PORTLAND-AREA. WE PLAN TO SELL 1500 TICKETS AT $10 EACH.

WE WOULD LIKE TO ASK YOUR BUSINESS TO DONATE ITEMS TO BE INCLUDED IN THIS FUNDRAISING EFFORT. ANY ITEMS WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. 

ADDITIONALLY, CATALOGS OR BROCHURES WILL BE UTILIZED TO YOUR GREATEST ADVANTAGE. IF CAMERA READY ART IS AVAILABLE, PLEASE INCLUDE THAT AS WELL.

SINCE WE ARE OPERATING UNDER THE SUPERVISION OF A NON-PROFIT FOUNDATION, ALL DONATIONS ARE TAX DEDUCTIBLE. APPROPRIATE DOCUMENTATION WILL BE SENT TO ALL CONTRIBUTORS.

PLEASE SEND DONATED ITEMS TO:

NAME
ADDRESS
CITY STATE, ZIP CODE
PHONE

IF SHIPPING UPS, PLEASE REQUEST “ADULT SIGNATURE REQUIRED.”  ANY QUESTIONS CAN BE ADDRESSED TO ME AT (503) -------.

PLEASE NOTE, THE INFORMATION THAT WAS FAXED TO YOU INCLUDES A COPY OF OUR 501c(3), WHICH VERIFIES OUR NON-PROFIT STATUS. PLEASE EXPECT A FOLLOW UP CALL FROM THE COMMITTEE WITHIN THE NEXT FEW DAYS.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND CONSIDERATION.
