Thanks to all of you who came out for NAMI, as walkers, as helpers for registration, and as donors. The sun was shining and all went well.
We are now moving ahead to school supplies, our annual summer project. Again this year, we will use your donations to purchase the supplies. This way we purchase just what the different receiving organizations are requesting.
We love photos! If you are doing any Community Service work at any of our affilates, please take a moment to have someone snap a photo of you volunteering so that we can show you in action both in the bulletin and on this MWI website.
