Letter from the President
Dear friends & family of Child Foundation,
My colleagues in Iran and USA offices have been working hard to prepare the latest six month reports. All of our sponsors will receive their latest six month report about the child, or children, they support from our office within the next month. We are also preparing a wonderful program for our Universal Children's Day celebration. It will be held on November 23 in Roxbury Center in Beverly Hills in collaboration with United Nations Association, UN Women, and UNICEF. Please see event's flyer in this newsletter.
The holiday season is just around the corner, a time for sharing time with families and sharing food with those who are less fortunate. Please look for our flyer and emails in your mail and donate to our food package fund as generously as you can.
We are also planning for an Annual Toy Drive in the Los Angeles area in collaboration with Radio 670AM and ProFamily Group.
