We were happy to provide Grant funding to Rockaway WISH.  Rockaway W.I.S.H. (Women Inspired to Support & Help) was formed in 2006, from a simple meeting amongst childhood friends looking to make a difference in the community.  Their mission is:

  • To recognize the needs of the community and volunteer our time and talents to assist our neighbors during difficult times.
  • To promote participation in charitable events, particularly those that bring attention to and support causes that affect the lives of women and children.
  • To encourage a sense of civil obligation and community service.
  • To foster new friendships and support networks amongst women.
  • To raise funds and provide financial assistance to members of the community in need and to causes which promote positive development in the community.
  • To inspire young women to be compassionate, understanding and active members of the community.
