WEP supporter Doe Boyle brought the philanthropic spirit to her holiday giving this season.
Alongside gifts of homemade rosemary oil, Boyle donated $200 to the WEP cause in her friends’ names. This amount is enough to send one WEP student to college, as well as provide her with the necessary supplies to further her education.
Doe also organized a community book drive to gather textbooks for WEP centers. By keeping drop-off boxes on her porch and directing packages to the WEP office, Boyle collected these valuable resources for WEP students.
