What is WALY-Warmth?

2013 is the 24rd consecutive year for WALY-Warmth, a program that buys warm winter clothing for underprivileged children from our area. Each December, we take these children on a shopping trip for their new clothes. For many of these children, it's the only Christmas they'll know.

How is money raised for WALY-Warmth?

We are happy to accept any and all donations. All donations are tax-deductible, and every single cent we raise through donations goes to help buy warm winter clothing for underprivileged right here in Blair County.

Are there really needy children in this area?

Yes! Over the years, I have seen children show up on the day of our shopping trip with no coats, no hats, and no mittens. One child came wearing jeans and a t-shirt on a cold December morning, and as he waited outside, he shoved his hands under his shirt, trying to keep warm. Another year, a little three-year-old girl came in thin summer socks and sandals, again on a cold December morning.

Life is always difficult for underprivileged children, and our help is needed more than ever. We're all tightening our belts a bit this year. For families that are struggling, a successful WALY-Warmth campaign will mean that their children will not go without the essentials that might otherwise be considered a luxury. If you look at some of the pictures posted here, loo closely at the light in the eyes of these children as they enjoy this magical adventure.

What else should I know about WALY-Warmth?

  • Hundreds of volunteers and contributors make WALY-Warmth happen each year, and we are forever grateful for their help.
  • In 1997, WALY-Warmth was awarded the Blair County Chamber of Commerce Committee's Choice Award Distinction.
  • Hundreds of Children have benefited from WALY-Warmth over the years. All the children are screened for eligibility by Child Advocates of Blair County.
