The participation of each and every USAWOA member in buying and selling tickets for our annual fund raiser, and contributing to the foundation both directly and by way of the annual National Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) is the vehicle by which we are able to provide this assistance to these very deserving young folks. The foundation, its Board of Directors and all applicants thank each of you for your contributions to this program.
