A first grade class partnering with a cancer center learned an 84 year old patient had a Christmas wish for a subscription to the Tri-City Herald newspaper. The class contacted the newspaper to ask about a donation. The response from the Tri-City Herald? No donation -- just a measly gift card for a reduction in the price.
This is the email that was sent to the Tri-City Herald. (Note: the email says the cancer patient is 82 but it has been confirmed he is 84.)
Hello my name is Jennifer -- and I’m contacting you on behalf of - 1st grade class at -- Elementary. For Christmas their class has partnered with the Tri-Cities Cancer Center and adopted an 82 year old cancer patient to give gifts to. One of the gifts on his wish list is a subscription to the Tri-City Herald. I am wondering if this is something that the Herald would be able to donate?
Please let me know if this is possible or who I need to speak with in regards to this.
Thank you in advance,
Below is the response from the Tri-City Herald -- and below that is the original email sent from the class.
