Project Wee Care was formed to provide food, clothing and gifts for families in the area who for whatever reason may not have a Merry Christmas. Each year we partner with the Millard Business Association members, Area Millard School Staff and Students, and Area Residents to help these families. This year our dedicated volunteers reached our goal of helping over 200 families by providing gifts of needed clothing plus food and personal hygiene supplies during the holiday break. In total we helped 210 families that totaled over 880 of our neighbors in need. Our "2013 North Pole" distribution location was generously donated by Cushman & Wakefield / Lund Co.
The last Holiday Season we helped over 157 area families that totaled over 660 people have food, clothing and necessary supplies for 2 weeks. We also made sure that each child had new warm clothing that they needed.
If you wish to make a Donation, Pull down the Foundation Tab and select DONATE.
