Suggested text of letter with contribution:
Dear Jaime (DNC) / Chuck (DSCC) / Nancy (DCCC)--
I am enclosing a check for my membership in the DNC/DSCC/DCCC.
I am also requesting that the DNC/DSCC/DCCC improve its marketing to publicize the accomplishments of President Biden and Congress. The President and the Democratic majorities in both Houses have passed many legislative initiatives which will be beneficial to all Americans, especially those who reside in districts and/or states represented by Republicans.
I fully expect many of those Republican legislators will take credit for bills benefiting their constituents, but which they voted against. My expectations are that the DNC/DSCC/DCCC will use its resources to call out this deception in every congressional district or state where this behavior occurs.
Every American should be aware of the benefits of the bills that were passed and how their lives will be improved.
Please do not wait until the fall to publicize the benefits to all Americans, not just Democrats.
Mr. Jaime Harrison, Democratic National Committee, Attn: Membership, 430 S. Capitol St. SE, Washington, DC 20003
The Honorable Chuck Schumer, Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, Attn: Membership, 120 Maryland Ave. NE, Washington, DC 20002
The Honorable Nancy Pelosi, Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, Attn: Membership, 430 S. Capitol St. SE, Washington, DC 20003
2. Help the Community: Volunteer for the January 27 Homeless Count
On Thursday, January 27, the County of San Bernardino and the City of Redlands will conduct the annual Point-In-Time-Count (PITC) of unsheltered homeless individuals.
In the City of Redlands, City employees and volunteers from the public, community groups, homeless service providers, law enforcement, educational institutions, faith-based organizations, local businesses, neighborhood associations, non-profit agencies, and others will canvass the City to count, survey, and assist the homeless population, in conjunction with the countywide PITC effort.
The PITC and survey is critical to secure government and private grant funding and other resources for the City to assist individuals who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.
The PITC will be conducted using a web-based application designed specifically for the San Bernardino County PITC. Volunteers will need an Apple or Android smartphone to conduct the survey.
Volunteers are needed to make the 2022 Point-In-Time-Count a success. Considerations for COVID-19 have been taken. Teams will adhere to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention COVID-19 safety guidelines. Personal Protective Equipment will be provided to all volunteers.

More information about the San Bernardino County Point-in-Time Count and Survey is available at https://wp.sbcounty.gov/dbh/sbchp/community-projects/point-in-time-count/

STICK A PIN IN THIS
The Rittenhouse trial demonstrated to us that judicial elections are incredibly important. Let us pledge together to become better informed prior to the next election where judges are on the ballot to ensure that we are electing qualified, non-partisan members of the bench to serve the judiciary in our region. #NoRittenhouseJudgesHere
