WELCOME TO WOWI
Welcome to the Women of West Islip Organization.
This organization consists of the wonderful, hard-working, loving women of West Islip. We were founded in November, 2010 by Regina Jacoby and Patty Vorilas. The objective of this group is to work together to make West Islip the great community that it should be. We will work together to help the organizations within our community, provide philanthropic services and outreach to families in need in West Islip and through working together and make strong bonds with each other.
We feel that our organization will one day be one of West Islip's finest. We do not require that you belong to any particular affiliation or possess any previous memberships to join our organization. We do ask that you support our organization.
Congratulations to WOWI for receiving the 2017 Women's History Award of Distinction!
