At each monthly meeting WCRW collects paper goods to be delivered to Faith Refuge, a shelter for homeless women and their children established in 2012.
The Dictionary Project
WCRW is delighted to participate in a project that provides individual paperback encylopedic dictionaries to third grade students. We chose to provide dictionaries to City View Elementary, Bradford Elementary in Iowa Park, and Electra Elementary Schools in Wichita County. Over 260 dictionaries are distributed each year!
WCRW was very pleased to offer a $500 scholarship to a graduating high school senior in Wichita County 2015 - 2018. In 2019, and going forward, our scholarship will be $1000.
