Who are the poorest of the poor? The women and children are.
-Joan D. Chittister
The Swim-a-Thon that W+winGs co-hosted with the Evergreen swim team in July, 2019 raised $10K for a local family who faced a medical emergency overseas. Great job Evergreen Barracudas!
What is W+winGs? What does W+winGs do?
We are are a group of moms, grandmothers, sisters and daughters, but primarily we are women who want to serve our community. W+winGs is a 501(c)3 and our main goal each year is to provide Thanksgiving dinner and Christmas gifts for local families who cannot afford these holidays on their own. We have helped as many as 16 families in one season. These families are members of our communities who come to our attention through social workers, churches and word-of-mouth.
Please attend one of our fundraising events to HELP members of our community while having fun!
In addition, we like to roll up our sleeves and provide hands-on help! We have stuffed backpacks, assembled camp bags, helped relocate a family and more! Please let us know if you need volunteers and we may be able to help!
