Opportunities for Kindness
WARM is asking for the community's help in getting a window A/C unit for a single mom. The window that the unit will be installed in is 28" wide. New or working used units are welcome as well as monetary donations and we will do the shopping. Small units are approximately $170.
Click the I Can Help link and follow the instructions to make a donation. Any donation of a new or used unit will be picked up by Neighborhood Bridges to deliver directly to the family in need.
A number of students at Westerville Central High School are in need of TI-84 Plus Graphing Calculators to use in their mathematics classes. The school library would catalog the calculators and check them out to the students at the start of the year and collect them at the end of the year. We will accept new or used and black and white or color calculators for the school. We will also accept monetary donations to purchase new calculators when they go on sale later this summer.
