No one should be without clothing, food, or an education within our reach. I have had the priviledge to serve on the board of directors since 2010. The Giving Closet has been meeting the needs of our community since 2000. In 2011 our education outreach program was born. Giving Hope helps through a variety of services including child, youth, and adult educational services. Adult Basic Education Program, and a mentoring program that includes basic life skills classes. The Giving Closet provides clothing and emergency food for free to families in need in our community.
Teach One to Lead One is a community mentoring program that teaches universal principles to lead at-risk kids to a life of purpose and potential. By directly putting qualified mentors into classrooms, we offer a positive influence that many at-risk kids have never had. Our proven methods have brought us success since 1996.
This program is a right of passage for 5th grade girls who are getting ready to enter middle school. This 9 week program takes them through a series of topics such as money management, nutrition, fitness, community services, etiquette and much more. The goal is to get the girls to realize they can be anything they want to be. To reach for the dream.
Wigglin Home Boxer Rescue
I am a PROUD volunteer for WHBR.
OUR VISION & OUR MISSION
The right boxer, the right home, loved forever.
Wigglin homes Boxer Rescue is a non-profit, all volunteer group of Boxer owners and lovers covering WA, OR and parts of ID & MT. WHBR knows the great need in our community for re-homing boxers found in unfortunate situations. These dogs come from all walks of life- neglected, homeless, owner surrendered, owner illness/death and military families unable to keep their beloved dogs due to their service to our country.
We provide this needed service through donors who believe in our mission, as well as fund raising events. We work diligently to control the Boxer population through mandatory spaying/neutering of our rescued Boxers. Additionally, we provide education on the Boxer personality and care, over-population in shelters and the many dangers of backyard breeding. Adoptive applicants are carefully screened to assure each Boxer is placed with an appropriate forever family, thus coming full circle and completing our goal.
The breakfast is held annually in October and our goal is to lift up and support our elected officials and recognize those outstanding members in our community who go above and beyond. Guest speakers are carefully selected each year to compliment the program.
