Annual TelferWorld Charity Giving

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Telfer's World!  Beginning in 2009 the annual Christmas Gift Exchange was transformed into an annual charity giving event.  The money that we would be spending on gifts goes instead to one charity, selected by the family.

For 2016 we donated $1,111 to The Women in Military Service Memorial. This national memorial honors all women who have served in the American military throughout history. In fact, there is a special collection, the Mae (Simas) Howe collection that honors our beloved Grandma Mae. The collection shares stories and photos of Grandma Mae during her time serving as commander of the 6716th Women's Army Crops (WAC) Headquarters Company in Italy. 

"A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots." -Marcus Garvey

The memorial operates as a 501c(3) non-profit. Funding comes from individual, corporate, and organization donations. A copy of their annual financial statement (tax form 990) can be found on their website. To learn more about the Women in Military Service Memorial, please visit their website.
