Dear Friends and Family,
I have now been at WINGS 17 years and you all have helped me each step of the way. This year, WINGS will embark on more expansion with a new facility in the city of Chicago. To complete this step, I need your help more than ever. Every dollar you give to this campaign will be matched by Rita and John Canning, up to $1 million. You will also insure that we win the prize of $100,000 that will go towards the growth of WINGS.
In Chicago, we are building a new facility with emergency and transitional housing called, WINGS Metro.
WINGS Metro is a state-of-the-art, innovative approach to helping women and children escape domestic violence. We are transforming an old police department building into a beautiful space that will allow the families to heal from their trauma and move to healthy, happy lives. There are many unique stories surrounding the building including the fact that there was a female officer who worked in this district office was killed in a domestic homicide leaving behind 5 small children. This story was covered on the Dr. Phil Show last spring. You can visit http://wingsprogram.com/wings-metro/brenda-sexton-memorial-garden/ to see the footage.
Thank you in advance for supporting this new intitiave and for your continued friendship.
