"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single
moment before starting to improve the world."
– Anne Frank
Hello <<First Name>>,
Thanks to the generous donations of people like you, the Atlanta Hunger Relief Fund, founded by Dan Appelrouth in 2005 and renamed the Daniel J. Appelrouth Hunger Relief Fund in 2016 after Dan’s passing, has raised over $185,000 to help feed Atlanta’s hungry.
Dan was passionately interested in helping the poor and many of you have continued to contribute to the fund since his death. Dan was a man of integrity, good deeds, and humility who touched thousands of lives in Atlanta. We are honored to be able to continue his good work.
We are writing to ask you to consider making a year-end* tax-deductible donation to the fund. Families and individuals with fixed incomes are the most vulnerable in a struggling economy and the holidays are an especially challenging time for them. Each $1 you donate provides more than $9 in groceries to someone in need. A contribution of $100 can feed a family of 4 for a month.
If you'd like to continue Dan's legacy of helping Atlanta's hungry, you can donate here.
Earlier this month, Dan was remembered at the annual Temima Benefit Concert. Dan emceed this concert for twelve years. This year, his son Jed was the emcee. The concert featured Rabbi Menashe Goldberger, Judy Cole, and Alan Knieter. The service also included a video montage of Dan's performances, as well as a duet by Jed and David and words and poetry by Arlene.
