A Letter To Involve Culinary Students

This letter must be written very soon as the Spring Semester ends in mid May. I believe they also have classes through the summer, but have a few weeks off between each term. We need to sieze those moments!

You can locate a list, by state, of culinary schools at the following site:

I placed the logos of all the organizations I am assisting at the top similar to a letter head, and then placed my name and address. You may use any and all of this information in your letter...

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing on behalf of the people in Hancock County, MS and the volunteer agencies assisting in the recovery effort.

While the Red Cross and Salvation Army continue to close their relief kitchens, the need for the citizens to be fed remains. The need is also great for the volunteer agencies feeding the thousands of volunteers that come to help every week.

With this in mind, the opportunities for your culinary students and staff to volunteer and make a significant impact in the lives of both the residents and volunteers are incredible.

I am willing to work with you and the agencies to make available internships for any students interested in real life experience to enhance their classroom studies. Most of the above listed agencies have established kitchens while the rest are working toward establishing kitchens for both volunteers and residents. If an internship is not an appealing option, the students and faculty can volunteer for as little as one week and as long as they wish to remain, having both room and board available for the duration of their stay.

If you are interested in helping, please contact me for a full list of agencies that would welcome you with open arms.

I thank you for your time and attention to this matter.

Sincerely,
