RE: Request Letter
Dear Daniel P. Whipple,

This is to inform you regarding the upcoming volunteering program by us which will help thousands of families that will be facing hunger this holiday season. The organization is proud to work for the ones in need and request your firm to volunteer for the same. Our goal is to help at least five thousand people in need, and we will not be able to do it without your help.

The person interested may select the category they would want to contribute, which includes serving food, collecting the donation, managing the tasks and doing the paper work. Hence, we request you to issue a notice for the same in your company so that more and more people can get to know about the same. We have asked for help from many organizations including yours.  We would also appreciate if you encourage more and more employees or people around you including your neighborhood and families. This contribution matters and therefore it will be highly appreciated if you could contribute. We are expecting a minimum of fifty people from you. The interested person may give us a call on 55555-5555 or may even email us on

Looking forward to your consideration for helping the ones in need. Thanking you.

Yours Sincerely,
John A. Swanson
