Hey WHMS, it is that time of year again when we get the chance to give back. As you can see at the top of the front steps we have our Tree of Hope. There are two types of tags on the Tree of Hope. There are Tree of Hope tags which have an ID# on them which represents a Wish from a child. and There are tags created by WHMS that are for more general items. If you think you would like to help, please check with your parent first and then follow these steps...
