Sample Business Letter
To the Store Manager:

My name is Jessica Pack and I am a teacher at James Workman Middle School. As the advisor for the JWMS Associated Student Body government, I am responsible for helping students plan campus events.

We are planning a student dance on February 14th, and we are currently seeking donations of candy to be given to students who attend. Would your store be able to donate individually wrapped fun-size candy for our event? Both chocolate and non-chocolate candies are needed.

Our school would be extremely grateful for any support you can provide. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 760-770-8540 or by emailing jpack@psusd.us.
