In addition, we donated $600 to the Elevate Your G.A.M.E. mentoring program to fund student summer internships, and we donated $500 to Valerie Hernandez ’09, to assist with her travel expenses to Hawaii for a week-long seminar. Your outpouring of support exemplifies the CHSAA slogan, “Reaching Back to Move Forward!” Thank you for giving back!

C/O Ms. Phyllis Williams

Dear Ms. Williams:
On behalf of the Clients, Board of Directors, Staff and Volunteers of Compton Welfare Rights Organization, Inc., we would like to say what a great honor it is to have Compton High School Alumni Association standing shoulder to shoulder with us and lifting your voices with ours, when we say to the homeless women and children and the disadvantaged throughout our community, that you are no longer alone.

To experience the wonderful spirit of charity that you showed, by not only sharing your time with us but donating the clothing and the toys for the children of our shelter are moments that will be deeply cherished. We thank you for making the holiday season joyful and complete with your presence. All of our clients are living daily with the misfortune of being in a total crisis situation (homelessness). Your thoughtful support during the holiday season was a wonderful boon and made even more special knowing you put your whole self into it.

Compton Welfare Rights Organization, Inc. is a sixty (60) day program for homeless women and women with children geared towards total self-sufficiency. Unfortunately, due to the national economic crisis, state and federal program cuts are on the rise and we need your help and the help of those like you to continue our endeavors in keeping our homeless program thriving. We look forward to your consideration as a continuing recipient of your commitment in helping homeless women and children in our community.

Thank you, Ms. Williams, and please pass our thanks to Compton High School Alumni Association, we appreciate their humanitarian efforts and all of you more than you know.

Sincerely,
Bernice La Cour, Shelter Director
Compton Welfare Rights Organization, Inc.
