President’s Holiday Message

Our holiday issue highlights the spirit of giving. It honors each of you who have joined together in a philanthropic life of being generous to others. A special thank you to our Social Media Team who created these beautiful images especially for our December News Brief. Each occasion was sponsored by one of our WRWF grantees who, in turn, chose to reach out and help others across our valley. It is because of you and your membership in our organization and your desire to be plentiful in your giving that makes these photographs come to life. They are examples of what is best about our valley during this time of the year.

Have the happiest of holidays,

Peggy Grove, Ph.D.
WRWF President
