MetroWest Legal Services
Final Appeal from MWLS Executive Director Elizabeth Soule
February 2011

As our 2010 annual appeal winds down, I am pleased to report an almost record-breaking year of donor contributions. 

But there's still work to be done if we are to reach our goal of $30,000. I am writing to you today to ask for your help in making up the $2,500 difference. With your donation of $50 or even $25, we have a good chance of getting there. 


As a past donor, I know you are very deliberate about where to spend your charitable dollars. I feel honored that over the years you have chosen MWLS as the recipient of your contributions. I ask that you once again put MWLS at the top of your charitable giving.   


The recession has plodded along much longer than any of us would have liked. Requests for legal assistance continue at a record-breaking pace- evictions, foreclosures, domestic violence, food stamps, unemployment benefits, health insurance, and special education services dominate our caseloads. We are doing everything we can to address the legal needs of as many people as we can but our resources can't keep pace with the demand.  

Our clients are in dire need and we are the lawyers of last resort. What happens when we have to say no? Homelessness, abuse, hunger, despair. 

Please help us to help those most vulnerable in our communities by contributing to our 2010 annual appeal. With your help, I know we can do it!
