Local Students are “Aiken” to Read

North Aiken Elementary School needs books – hard back or soft back – new or gently used for students in Kindergarten thru 5th Grade.  Your donations will help children who are celebrating birthdays take home a Birthday Book on his or her birthday.  Many of these boys and girls have very few if any books in their home library.  To find out how you can help these children, please refer to the September 19th email sent to all W.O.W. members.  Thank you!

Honor Mission: Operation Mail Call

Veteran’s Day is fast approaching, and we are collecting written “thank you” cards and letters to distribute to veterans in Aiken’s nursing homes, home health care and hospice.  Many veterans have never even heard the words “thank you for your service”.  Imagine the joy that receiving a card would make for a veteran who is older, lonely, and feeling forgotten.  Our goal is to deliver 1,200 cards from W.O.W. and friends of W.O.W.  Accordingly, we need your help to ensure that every veteran is recognized with multiple cards of thanks.  For further informtion and details on how you can help, refer to the September 15th email sent to all W.O.W. members.
