East County Mortuary Once Again Donates to the El Cajon Library Family Play Day

Dear Robert,

I am writing to say thank you yet again for helping us out by donating 400 pieces of fruit for the hungry and hot kids of El Cajon, not to mention their parents!  Our Family Play Day attracted more than 350 people, who enjoyed learning how to make their own play dough and obstacle courses, used the rocket launcher, got their faces painted by the Teen Coalition from the El Cajon Parks & Rec Department, and generally reveled in hanging out at the library.

As always, the crowd reflected the rich and appealing diversity of our communities in El Cajon.  The library is a place where everyone comes together and celebrates what we all have in common:  we want our kids to thrive, learn and play, and we want to enjoy the blessing of the services and resources this city offers.  You are an anazing leader in this community, and we're lucky to benefit from your generosity and warmth.

With gratitude and appreciation,

Hildie Kraus
