WFS Teddy Bear Challenge

Teddy Bear Challenge

Just under 4 weeks left in the Teddy Bear Challenge!  The Teddy Bear Challenge closes on Wednesday, June 10!

What is the Teddy Bear Challenge?  One of the most important fundraisers for WFS ... which contributes the funds to sustain the programs and services offered at no cost to women in recovery.  These include but are not limited to ... the WFS online Forum and the WFS Chat platform, the materials handed out at WFS face to face meetings, the Zoom licenses for virtual meetings, the scholarships, outreach efforts and the operations of the WFS office.

How can you help?  This year the first $20,000 is being double matched by a WFS angel!  Yes, the first $20,000 is tripled!  You may donate online or use the form in the attached flyer to mail in a check.
