    "Operation Santa Claus"

    Hey guys this is something we do through the agency each year. We sent this email out to our clients/agents.

    I know times are tough, but if any of you can spare toys/clothes. new or used, this can really help brighten up a few families holidays.

    If interested PM me your email and I will send over the list.

    Thanks,

    Elliott


    Dear Family and Friends of Strickler Insurance,

    The holiday season is fast approaching. It is one of my favorite times of
    the year and I look forward to sharing the holiday season with you all.
    As many of you know, Strickler Insurance is partaking in "Operation Santa Claus", organized by the United States Postal Service. This is our 3rd year participating, and we are ready to make 2008 our best year yet! Many needy children write to Santa each year, asking for items such as winter jackets, shoes, toys, or even food for Christmas dinner. It's a sad fact that millions of children in the United States will not have a single gift to open on Christmas Day, or a filling meal to share with their family. We aim to change that and make sure every child has at least one present 'from Santa' under their tree, and a full tummy at the end of the day.

    Sitting down and reading these letters is a riveting experience, like peering through a window into their lives. We know that with your help we can go a long way into making sure no child's wish goes unheard.

    This year we have adopted three familes: The Diaz family, the Celestino family and the Esparza family. Please help us make their dreams come true and make this Christmas one that they will never forget.

    If you would like to drop off a gift from the children's wish lists, or simply make a donation, our collection bin is located at:

    Strickler Insurance Agency, Inc.
    17401 Ventura Blvd. A-35,
    Encino CA 91316

    We will be accepting donations until December 23rd. We will be hand
    delivering these items Christmas Eve!

    Thank you for taking a moment to listen to our cause. Wishing you all the pleasures of the Holidays, filled with warmth and blessed by peace.


    Sincerely,

    Elliott Strickler

    Bumpity

    To the top.

    I have attached one of the letters. We have 3 families total. you can see at the end of the letter he asks for food to celebrate.

    Please let me know if anyone can spare any old toys, books, canned food, even a few dollars, every little bit helps!

    If any one wants to see any of the other letters let me know.

    Thanks!
