WOW is very thankful to Ms. Betty Crigger for her generous donation.  Ms. Crigger had hoped to deliver it to us in person at the Craft Fair donation event, but was unable to make it due to a prior commitment.  Regardless, we would love to catch up any time and extend our great thanks for the financial support!

Thanks so much to Janice Dickins-Davidson and Larry Davidson of Roanoke, VA who gave WOW our first gift of 2022!  Their generosity may help provide prepaid phones to displaced people, or to pay legal fees for guardianship proceedings, or costs associated with therapeutic interventions.  We appreciate you thinking of us, and will surely put your pledge to good use!

We thank you both for helping those in need!
