Attached is our newsletter for June; we hope you enjoy it.
We are preparing for our 9th Run/Walk to be held Saturday, September 24th, at Woodward Park. We are actively seeking donors and sponsors—and we hope you can help. If you work for a company that sponsors local charitable events, please ask for their support. If you are not comfortable doing that, please contact Leann Gouveia at the office, (559) 322-5877, or by email, firstname.lastname@example.org.
As most of you know, we are not just about providing support and services to those who have actually lost someone to suicide. As part of our community service, we spend hundreds of hours each year educating thousands of students in local area schools with presentations by our Speaker’s Bureau. In most instances, a survivor shares their personal experience with suicide loss (this is always an attention getter), and the team then goes on to remind the classes about warning signs while also offering sources of help. We—or school counselors-- often get requests for help as a result of this program. And these presentations are not JUST for schools; they are also available to professional groups. We are the only local organization locally that is actively involved in suicide prevention!
