Merry Christmas and a joyous season to you

Dear IWP members,

Thank you, thank you!

In a year of what has contained a lot of darkness, the IWP came through with shining colors! 

More than fifty – yes 50 – beautifully wrapped, creatively filled boxes of gifts were delivered last Tuesday to the Freguesia de Cascais. Inside all these packages were items for the ‘lady of the house’ and they will be delivered to the underserved population in our town.

The effort and generosity that went into this project was symbolic of the care that we have for those around us who are in need. Beyond that, the idea allowed us to participate in a meaningful way and offer what may be the only gift that someone in our community receives this holiday season. Well done to all! I think a new and fun tradition could be in the works ….. !

Our best to you all at this time with hopes for a New Year filled with good health and happiness,

Maria Barros, Executive President and the members of the Board
