Page It Forward!
United Way of the Midlands is collecting books for elementary school kids to take home for the summer to prevent reading loss, and WIP needs YOUR help!

Here are three ways you can help:
1. Purchase a book from our
Amazon Wish List and bring it to the next WIP and Wine.
2. Have Amazon send your book(s) to United Way's headquarters at 1818 Blanding St. Columbia, SC 29201 (or drop them off yourself).
Donate to the cause.
WIP and Wine
Did someone say pizza and free wine?
Unwind with us! Grab a girlfriend and drop in for hot, delicious pizza and a drink for WIP's monthly social gathering on Wednesday, March 29 at 5:30 PM at Za's Brick Oven Pizza in Columbia! If you bring a book for the MRC Book Drive, enjoy a free drink on us!

WIP and Wine rotates to different locations in the Midlands every month. This is a great way to get to know other members, including the Executive Committee, and to learn more about how WIP is impacting our community! Members and non-members are both welcome!
