Dear Friends & Family of Mark Kelly and Recycling Furniture for Families,

The Mark Kelly (Pictured) Memorial Fundraiser embodies the clear and solid commitment Mark had for improving the day to day lives of families in desperate need.  Once again I am reaching out for your help and donations to the 2016 Fundraiser.

The Mark Kelly Fundraiser was established in 2010 to celebrate the gifts of Mark’s countless volunteer hours at Recycling Furniture for Families (RF4F), providing home furnishings for families found near-hopeless often as a result of domestic violence or recent homelessness.  You may visit  to learn more about the non-profit services they faithfully provide to families yearly.  Since 2010 your generous gifts have turned this into our biggest fundraiser of the year, and thus helped many families receive life-sustaining goods. Our goal this year is $25,000.    The amount raised from this fundraiser is greatly needed to support the operational needs of our organization.

I ask you to remember the empathy, kindness and understanding that my brother Mark exemplified.  To make a donation in Mark’s name, please stop by or mail a check to RF4F, 515 N. Center Street, Bloomington IL 61701. Or use this link, the financial donation page of RF4F website during our drive period from now until September 5, 2016. Please indicate that the purpose of your donation is “Mark Kelly”:

Thanks to all of you for making this happen,

Beth Kelly

P.S.  For every $25 donated, you will receive one entry for a chance to win one of the following prizes ($500 for first prize, $250 for second prize, or $100 for third prize).   For example, a $100 donation gives you four chances to win. The raffle drawing and the winners will be announced on Tuesday, September 6th.
