What a cold winter it’s been in Central PA! Thanks to our community, the 28th annual WALY-Warmth was able to buy warm winter clothing for 155 area children. The kids shopped for everything essential for these bitter winter days: hats, coats, boots, pants, socks, shirts; whatever they needed.

All of the children were screened for need by an independent agency. And the stories…well, it doesn’t take much these days to struggle making ends meet. That’s where we stepped in and took one worry away from these families, but providing the kids with winter essentials.

This winter is a little warmer and brighter for these kids. Every cent of your donation stayed right here in Blair County, helping families in need.  Our Sunday morning shopping trip was loud, busy, and joyful, with excited kids picking out their new clothing and shoes.

Our mission to provide warm winter clothing for local children will continue as long as there’s a need. Words can’t express our thanks for changing their lives, and letting these families know there are people who care.
