Our annual SUOAF Holiday Party will be on Dec 18th at 4:00, Student Center Café. As was the case last year, SUOAF will match the amount generated by the members. The organization we will be donating to this year is WAIM
Here is information from WAIM's website (www.waimct.org). If you click on "programs" you can see the breadth of impact they have in the community. Their heating system broke and they are in need of funds to purchase a new heating system to keep the organization functioning. They are located at 866 Main Street in Willimantic. The director is an Eastern graduate, Victoria Nimirowski.
WAIM started in 1984 in the basement of a local church with the original intention of redistributing clothing to our neighbors in need. Since then, we've grown to an organization that, along with clothing, provides furniture, appliances, linens, career clothing and emergency financial assistance to over 8,000 people each year from Windham and twelve surrounding towns. We also manage a thriving community garden at Lauter Park in Willimantic, and provide seasonal programs to help clients make ends meet.
