We love giving out Gift Banks to hospitals, shelters and other programs and facilities all over the country – including those in our own “backyard” of the Florida. We take great pride in knowing that our Gift Banks are providing many children with the opportunity to smile, even through any difficult circumstances they may be facing.
It’s a great boost for us when we receive a ‘thank you’ note from the staff of our Gift Bank facilities; they really help bring home the joy that our programs spread throughout the world. In fact, we just received a very nice note from Lenice Emanuel, the CEO of the YWCA Tampa Bay:
Thank you for the recent agreement between Kids Wish Network and YWCA Tampa Bay to provide a “Gift Bank” for the children assisted by our Family Village Child Development Center.
By your support of our mission to encourage these children, your organization serves as an advocate in ensuring that at-risk children receive a high-quality, early start on learning, and homeless children have a safe place to regain a sense of normalcy.
YWCA Tampa Bay’s mission is to eliminate racism, empower women, and promote peace, dignity, and social justice for all people. Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or suggestions you may have.
We are blessed to have this opportunity to collaborate with you. Thank you again for your generosity!
Lenice C. Emanuel, MLA
We’re so glad to be able to help wherever we can.
