To launch our toy drive, Irene led a team of local women to an abandoned toy store to collect toys for the California Wildfire Victims.
Once again we put out a call for help on social media and our call was answered on a chilly day in early December.
Special thank you to the WISH girls of Long Beach. The whole club came to show support for this mission to help others.

Two of our Long Beach, NY 7th graders with acting and singing skills led our load day with the National Anthem. We are honored that they shared their talents.
Melissa Candreva took days off from work, donated luxury gifts for the raffles and brought in hundreds of dollars in gift cards from ARBOR. She made food donations every day and was a consistent comfort to have on collection days. We are proud to present our newest board member to Wave of Hope USA. We are humbled by your generosity ARBOR and Melissa Candreva.
We worked closely with Cal Fire of Napa, Christie Metzner of the St. Helena Chamber of Commerce, Belia Ramos of Fire Victims services and Father Mauro of St. John the Baptist Catholic Church.
Our team in Napa made sure families directly affected by the fires were invited to select gifts. We made sure there were enough cool red bags for them to load up the gifts.
We gave each family these red sacks to collect gifts and keep things festive.
Some people shared their stories of the fires and some people were effected by their places of work being shut down. Many were unable to collect pay during the recovery time. Many people are still looking for jobs to replace their previous source of income. But all who came to the event went home with gifts from Waves of Hope USA.
