WASWUG has selected Three Squares as the recipient of charitable donations for WASWUG Spring.
Hungry children cannot concentrate on learning, are sick more often and have more behavior problems than well-nourished children. Your donations make a tremendous impact and allow Three Squares to purchase food that schools directly distribute to students. Your gifts, corporate contributions and foundation grants power this critical resource for children across the state.
Ways to Support Three Squares:
• Donate online and add WASWUG Charity Partner in the Comments section
• Purchase fun ribbons at WASWUG
• Make a cash, check or credit card contribution at WASWUG
