    DAY OF GIVING 

    Dear Watershed Supporters:

    We are currently looking to purchase two data loggers for the Redbank Creek to help protect and monitor our drinking water from those who may want to ignore protections that are in place. These data loggers will remain in the stream 24 hours/7 days a week continually monitoring for chemicals and pollutants that could harm the health and well being of our communities and the wildlife that shares the water with us. The cost of these data loggers along with the computers to store the data will approach $3000 - $4000 apiece. This is why we are participating in the first annual Armstrong County Day of Giving on May 12, 2011.

    To participate in this event and help us raise money to protect our waters, you must donate in one of the following four ways:

    1. Write a check to ACCF (Armstrong County Community Foundation) with the Redbank Watershed Association in the memo before May 12, 2011 and deliver to the Subway restaurant in New Bethlehem. I will make sure to get it to ACCF on the 12th.

    2. Write a check to ACCF with Redbank Watershed Association in the memo and hand deliver it on May 12, 2011 to 160 N. McKean Street, Kittanning.

    3. Write a check to ACCF with Redbank Watershed Association in the memo and mail it on May 12, 2011 (postmark must be May 12, 2011 to get matching funds).

    4. Make a secure online donation from www.ArmstrongGives.org on May 12, 2011 by clicking on the donate button next to the logo. (easiest way).

    Sincerely,

    Timothy E. Murray
    President
    Redbank Watershed Association
