Please note: We cannot solicit donations or signature petition support for any organization. While philanthropic efforts like a bake sale and food drive are admirable they do not meet the mission of WWW. This event is about rolling up your sleeves and getting out into the community. Participation as a walker in a charity walk/run event or as a donor in a blood drive does not meet the mission of WWW unless the volunteers are actually organizing and staffing the event.
