In Haiti, as in most countries, children are required to have on a pair of shoes in order to attend school. Unfortunately, many children are not able to start or complete their education because they have no access to schools. The Wilmington Chapter of The Links, Inc. partnered with Sole 2 Soul to collect shoes (donated by our community) and send them to needy children in Haiti. Sandra Huth of Sole 2 Soul and her husband delivered the shoes this month and send us pictures of lots of kids with new shoes! We're glad to have helped get these children back into their classrooms! If you donated shoes, we thank you!

Heart Walk 2013Heart disease is the #1 killer of both men and women. Everyone knows someone who has been affected by heart disease or stroke.

For several years, I have participated in raising funds for heart disease research in honor of many family members, especially my beloved mother who passed on September 26, 2013.

On October 19, 2013, I will participate in the Annual American Heart Association Heart Walk. I have set a personal goal of raising $500.00. I hope you will support me in this effort by making a donation today. You can make donations via credit card payment by logging onto website:
