Local HarriOak Project Darreis needs your help

Dear Community,

Project Darreis at TGN Foundation is a 501c3 non profit organization assisting in the struggle against violence.

Project Darreis is currently preparing for their 4th annual Christmas celebration commemorating the Life of Darreis S. Toyfoya and others who have lost theirs live to crime and violence. The Christmas celebration will take place on December 10th, 2011.

We all know that during these trying times, crime and violence is on the rise in our communities. What many don't realize is that during the holiday season, crime and violence often spike. On December 10th, 2011, Project Darreis seeks to bring the community together and thereby stave off the expected increase in violence, by providing resources, gospel singing, spoken word performances, gifts for adults, toys for children, and a turkey/ham dinner with all the trimmings for families in need.

Project Darreis would like to invite you to contribute to this holiday mission and is requesting gift cards, monetary donations and toys in hopes of fostering a peaceful, safe and happy holiday season.

Please consider what you could give to this local HarriOak based non profit and know that any gift or offer is appreciated and honored.

To give or for further information, please contact Belinda Gilchrist-Day, founder of Project Darreis at 510-467-5053 or email projectdarreis@yahoo.com.

Thank you and blessings.
