Do More 24

#DoMore24 We are getting ready for Do More 24. Do More is an annual 24-hour fundraiser that is powered by United Way of the National Capital Area. Last year, WLC raised $500 with our campaign. Those funds allowed us to purchase student materials for a ten month literacy course for 10 students. This year we have even bigger plans! Our goal is to raise $2,400! Let's see what a difference a year can make!! We've even set a special hour goal. We want to raise $500 during the 11-12pm hour. Our most crucial needs include: new computers for our computer lab, a database structure to facilitate our daily operations and deliver crucial insights into our program, a new phone system, books and materials
