WOWI Giving Tree 2021
Here are pictures of the gifts that were so generously donated for the WOWI Giving Tree 2021. With your generosity, 14 families woke up to a magical Christmas morning. Special thanks to our coordinator, Sue Cosentino and the school social workers for all of their hard work and dedication. Bless you all.
Also, beautiful Breakfast Bags were shopped and prepared by member Diane Trommer on behalf of WOWI. Each family received all the fixings for a bountiful Christmas morning breakfast.
We thank you for your continued support and generosity. Without YOU, we could not do what we do.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank Helene Tsouprakos and The South Shore Childrens Center (West Islip) for their generous donation towards supermarket gift cards. Every year, Helene, her staff, and the families from SSCC are always so generous to WOWI and the families who are in need. Bless you.
We wish you all a beautiful Christmas and a New Year filled with love, health, happiness and kindness.
