WHO We Are
Vision Statement: WHO is a cohesive group of people with a passion and purpose for caring, sharing and serving the extended community.
Mission Statement: The mission of WHO is to support existing charitable organizations with time, donations and assistance while fostering camaraderie, fellowship and inclusion.
It all started with a conversation between Mollie Hoff and Nina Stancil in 2009. We were discussing how and what we could do to help the community. A few days later Mollie said “I’ve had a dream, I know what we can do.” She explained that we all go out to lunch and normally we spend around $10. So instead of going to lunch, we would meet for lunch, bring a salad to share and donate the $10 to help the various charities in Georgetown. We called a few ladies from N43 and had our first meeting in January of 2010 at Mollie's house. It was a very small beginning, and who knew we would be so successful? We had a total of 12 women at that first meeting: Mollie Hoff, Evelyn Bearden, Lucette Hoenes, Ginny Taylor, Vickie Cates, Shirley Kemp, Kathy Sabo, Wanda Cussio, Audrey Luetge, Mary Wright, Judy Cuchna and Nina Stancil.
This group gave us our first name, Salads of Services (SOS). We discovered there was a non-profit organization in Georgetown using the same acronym, so in 2011 we changed our name to Women Helping Others (WHO) and adopted the owl as our symbol.
WHO became a chartered club in 2014 and currently has a membership of over 130 members. WHO has teamed with Meals-on-Wheels, The Caring Place, The Georgetown Nest and Brookwood in Georgetown (BiG) to support their missions. We have supported them by sponsoring fundraisers, volunteering, donating money and also by spreading the word that these non-profits need help.
