  • WOW Sits Down With Krissy Green of the Douglas J. Green Memorial Foundation

    11.06.2014 / Community Events WOW Interview Series

    WOW sat down with Krissy Green, Founder of the local Douglas J. Green Memorial Foundation, to talk about more about their mission to create and send meaningful carepackages to soldiers overseas.
