WAMMS History of SERVICE

2008

25-26June2008

"WALK a MILE in MY SHOES~~~on the Path to PEACE!!!"...was born as a result of meeting Viana Bruce, Co-ordinator of the Military Family Support Group...in Phoenix, AZ.  


While stopping for dinner at SWEET TOMATOES in Phoenix, Viana introduced Me to Her organization & continued to share:  "The thing that is needed most...on the ground...in IRAQ & AFGANISTAN...are children's SHOES.


Her 'simple' message encouraged Me to PAUSE.


Overnight, sleep was challenging...until the 'revelation' of WAMMS was revealed.


On the morning of 26June, I knew what needed to be done & as a result, WAMMS was born & Our efforts for 'sharing 'gently-loved' SHOES began.  


Although Our original concept was to send SHOES to Miltary Medics & Chaplains...on the ground in IRAQ & AFGANISTAN, it became very clear that the need was great...at Home, too.  


WAMMS 'Mission' of the SOLE...began.

2009

With the diligent participation & assistance by dear Friends, here in the Valley-of-the-Sun, WAMMS STEPped FORward to collect & share 'gently-loved' SHOES.  


Our efforts in sharing SHOES with the Military Medics & Chaplains...continued; however, new efforts were established at home.


SKATELAND/Mesa & sister properties STEPped FORward to offer opportunities to visit & to welcome the sharing of SHOES.


With the 'intention' of 'Providing a Sturdy Foundation for a PEACEFul Day...to Folks having NO SHOES, at all...WAMMS began sharing with:

*  Human Services Campus

*  Arizona Women's Educ & Employment

*  UMOM/Transitional Housing

& others.
