Dear Friend of La Conexión,

On behalf of La Conexión de Wood County, we wanted to thank you for your support and encouragement over the past year. Recently, the Human Relations Commission recognized La Conexión with its Honor Roll award. Over the past year, La Conexion has continued to stay true to its central mission and purpose of being a resource of unity and representation for the Latino/a community of Wood County and surrounding areas. We are grateful to our community partners for their ongoing support.

In addition, this past August, La Conexión completed and filed the paperwork with the IRS to be considered an official 501©3 organization and officially elected a Board of Directors. We are pleased to share that our application has been approved and we are an official 501©3 organization. This will provide La Conexión greater opportunities for growth.


As we conclude this 2014 year, we started a formal pledge drive and are asking for your financial support to help us continue in our work and mission to help the Latino/a community in Wood County. Any amount would be greatly appreciated, and your donation would be tax-deductible. Donation checks should be made out to La Conexión de Wood County and sent to La Conexión, P. O.

Thanks again for your support and we look forward to 2015 and beyond.
