Dear [Recipients Name],

I was devastated to see your home after last weekend's flash flood. No-one was prepared for it, and yet you did more than anyone to help out your neighbors. It is though your turn to be helped, all of your neighbors will help with the clean up of your house and yard. Remember we are here whenever you need help, not just now, in your time of need but in the future as well.
