    Subject: Help Sovernet Help the Foodbank with a matched donation
    > We at Sovernet would like to reach out to all of our neighbors who have been displaced or upended by the floods from hurricane Irene. As many of you know, we have collaborated with the Vermont Foodbank for years because of their resourcefulness and their ability to feed Vermonters in need. The Foodbank’s services will be necessary more than ever in the upcoming weeks and we want to give our customers a way to donate to their neighbors. Your September and October Sovernet invoices will contain an insert for a contribution to the Vermont Foodbank, and Sovernet will match your donation – dollar for dollar. If you would rather not wait, you may call in your donation by phone (877.877.2120, option 4) or send us a check (please indicate that it is a donation for the Foodbank) to Sovernet, POB 495, Bellows Falls VT 05101, or include your donation with your payment this coming month – using the insert provided. Remember, Sovernet will match the donation to double the impact.
    > From John Sayles, CEO of the Vermont Foodbank – Please take advantage of this tremendous opportunity to act quickly and locally so that your efforts will be doubled. Thank you for in advance for helping your Vermont neighbors.
    > Thanks so much for your help,
    > Rich Kendall, President
