Creating Impact

Thanks to the extraordinary support from local foundations and community friends, WISE received a record $32,000 in new gifts,

donations, and grants in 2021-2022.

The Community Foundation of the Virginias

funded grant requests in the amounts of

$5,000 in 2021 and $7,500 in 2022 to support

WISE outreach programs geared toward helping drug-court participants, services, and supplies for local domestic violence shelters and halfway houses, and establishing Care Closets in our local high schools that help provide personal

hygiene products to students.

The United Way of Southern West Virginia has provided grant funding of $1,000 in 2021 for the purchase of COVID supplies and an additional $3,500 in 2021 to provide Care packages for local shelters and our WISE staff and volunteers. Funding was also earmarked for women's health awareness and support to help local women work towards financial independence.

In 2021, WISE received a printing grant

in the amount of $500 from One by One for promotional materials to help continue

sharing about WISE in our community.

We are pleased to work with One by One

again in 2022 for a second time and

are proudly the recipient of their August 2022

promotional non-profit grant.

The Bluefield Elks Club funded grant requests

for $5,500 in 2021 and $6,000 in 2022 to

support the service programs at WISE to promote drug addiction awareness with local students as well as in our local communities.

This funding will also provide funding support for our Baskets of Hope program.

The healthcare workers at Princeton Community Hospital held a scrub drive for WISE in 2022 and donated over 500 pieces of scrubs.

All donations received will be used to help

students and new healthcare workers secure the uniforms they need to study and begin their

work in the healthcare field in our area.

We are so blessed that they donated to us!

WISE is very thankful for the generosity of

Cathy & Fred Muth. Through their

donations, WISE has been able to

upgrade the equipment in the office and

in our charity shop. Additionally, we have

been able to upgrade our storage

systems for our Care Closet program.

The Muth's also arranged for the charity shop

to receive a facelift!
