member of the month:
July's Member of the Month is Audra from Dousman! Back in December 2017, SBWIS received a generous grant from Allay Home and Hospice that included the purchase of a red zipzac for our Toddlers on the Move Program. We are excited to share that Audra is one of our newest SBWIS Toddlers on the Move. Audra’s mom, Sarah shared her reaction, “THANK YOU for this amazing program — the zipzac has helped tremendously with Audra’s independence and curiosity! She is exploring her environment and already learning to push those little wheels. We are so grateful for this opportunity to show our girl a whole new world to explore!” Go Audra! #WISBimpact
