“I had to ask for help a year or so ago, and the WGTC Foundation helped me through Project Care. My husband had been sick and couldn’t work, and I didn’t know how we would make it through the holidays. I know I can’t give much, but I like giving back to Project Care and the WGTC Foundation. We don’t realize from day to day the employees and students that struggle to make it. I appreciate the help I received and hope I can help someone else by giving back.”
