The WICT Southwest Chapter is excited for the continued opportunity for members and friends to come together for a greater cause. In a time when so many of the elderly population in our communities are feeling alone, scared, or sad from the events that have occurred in 2020, we want to offer the opportunity to give them something else to focus on. In conjunction with volunteer options available through Cox Communications, Southwest Region, we offer the opportunity for folks to write encouraging, impactful notes or letters to our elderly. The intent is to share something positive, kind and uplifting to show that despite all that's going on, it's ok to keep our faith in humanity.

MANA (Marines, Army, Navy, Airforce) House is a peer-support organization of homeless and formerly homeless veterans. Mana House helps support veterans rebuilding their lives by providing support from their staff and partners. Send you card of thanks, share uplifting stories, talk about your own military service, or just send a note to say hello.
