Dear Mr. Smith,

We are writing on behalf of Ms. Rohde's 4th grade classroom at Hill Elementary. We are working in partnership with the National Wildlife Federation to create a Wildlife Habitat in our school's backyard. As part of this effort, we will be planting new trees and shrubs which are native to our area, and removing invasive species of plants.

We are writing to ask for your support in this effort. Our classroom needs shovels, hoes and other tools, as well as the following plants:

Please contact us at the phone number or email address above to let us know whether or not you will be able to help us. We would appreciate a response before March 30.

Thank you for your time.
