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 helped 157 area families that totaled over 660 people by providing gifts of needed clothing plus food and personal hygiene supplies during the holiday break. Our "North Pole" distribution location at 4020 S 147th Street has been generously donated by Ted Grace Development.
The last Holiday Season we helped over 130 families that totaled 535 people have food, clothing and necessary supplies for 2 weeks. We also made sure that each child had new clothing that they needed.
If you wish to make a Donation, Pull down the Foundation Tab and select DONATE.
