Calculators for W.I.S. H. - YUMMommy

Calculators for W.I.S. H.

Summer is officially coming to a close and for a few of us school has already started.  Sad I know because you've spent all summer bonding with the kiddies and now you all have to get used to new routines.  There's lunches to pack, outfits to lay out and last minute supplies to buy. And while you're out buying those last minute supplies how about picking up a Texas Instrument TI 34-II or TI 83 calculator for a needy middle school or high school student?

"W.I.S.H. (Workforce Initiative for Supportive Housing) Program is a callaborative solution designed to eliminate homelessness by rapidly re-housing homeless working families in safe and decent vacant apartments and empowering them with extensive realationship-oriented, supportive services to become self-sufficient."


Among services like housing placement and family support, W.I.S.H. is trying to make sure that the children of these families are prepared for this school year by collecting TI 34-II and TI 83 calculators.  Calculators can be new or used.  Used calculators need to be in decent working condition obviously. Calculators can be mailed to:

Lisa Stockton Howell, Volunteer Manager
W.I.S.H. Program
500 A Spratt Street
Charlotte, NC 28206


You can also learn more about W.I.S.H. and how you can donate other items by visiting their website, http://www.wishprogram.org/.  I hope that you all will help spread the word about this wonderful program and their amazing cause.
