Dear Family and Friends

We at SHS have been fortunate in the past few years to be the recipient of a David A. and Mildred H. Morse Charitable Trust Matching Challenge Grant. This grant has greatly enhanced our ability to bring the SHS website forward, to create and maintain a Facebook page and to accomplish many other projects. The grant, along with your generous matching gifts, allows SHS to fund the work of Catherine Smith, SHS’s assistant director.


Once again we’ve been offered the David A. and Mildred H. Morse Charitable Trust Matching Challenge Grant. We will only receive this grant if we are able to raise the matching funds. It’s necessary to raise $10,000.


Many of you have generously donated to this grant in recent years. We ask that you help us once again. It is only because of the grant that Catherine can continue her work for SHS.


Please consider making a contribution of any amount specifically for the David A. and Mildred H. Morse Charitable Trust Matching Challenge Grant. If you have not yet made your annual contribution, please consider doing so now and adding an additional amount to help fund the matching grant. We cannot keep Catherine without these funds. And her assistance is truly essential.


Thank you for your consideration.


Joan Adler

Executive Director
