We need your support!
I write to you today on behalf of the Malibu/Lost Hills Sheriff’s Foundation (MLHSF), a California non-profit public benefit corporation founded by your neighbors for the sole purpose of providing community support for the deputies of the Malibu Lost Hills Sheriff’s station who proudly serve our community.
This organization was first formed twelve years ago by your neighbors who recognized that there was a need for this kind of support due to shortfall in funding by the county to provide the specialized equipment that the Sheriffs deputies required in order to perform their duties in this wonderful and unique area we all call home. Very few areas in this country enjoy the mountainous terrain and white sand beaches that we enjoy here. With that beauty comes a unique challenge that these deputies face each day when called to duty to assist the citizens of this area whether it is a mountain rescue, fire, a car accident, a drowning at the beach or some other incident which requires specialized equipment so the deputies can do their jobs safely and effectively for our community.
Your support is now being sought so we can continue our efforts in supplying immediate funding to respond to the specialized needs of those who protect and defend this community from harm, by providing them with the equipment and support they need to do their jobs. Such ability to provide immediate relief, without the worry of budget limitations and/or appropriations as well as the rest of the traditional “red tape” that goes along with standard request for equipment, gives the MLHSF the opportunity to get these law enforcement professionals the tools they need as soon as they need it. In the past the MLHSF has funded breathing filters/masks and eye protection during the Malibu fires, forensics investigations training, a state of the art physical training facility/gym, tactical entry vests for detectives, maintenance for the Malibu Beach Team command post trailer, training seminar fees for deputies and much more. The MLHSF has also provided funds to the families of station personnel during their times of need due to illness or injury.
Attached to this letter is our general appeal form which we ask that you consider responding to with a donation. No donation is ever too small and is always appreciated.
The Malibu/Lost Hills station personnel especially appreciate knowing that their needs are provided for through the generosity and support of citizens like you. The MLHSF is an organization of only volunteers so 100% of all funds collected go directly to the benefit of the personnel of the station.
Once again, on behalf of the board of directors of the MLHSF and our law enforcement professionals we support, please accept my thanks for your kindness, generosity and support. As always, should you require any other information or have any questions, please feel free to contact me at any time at the below telephone number.
Very truly yours,
Christopher Levinson, President
Malibu Lost Hills Sheriff’s Foundation
