Jeff Slosman, president of National Wiper Alliance, recently made a generous in-kind gift of wipes to United Way for distribution among Buncombe County first responders and nonprofit community.
With a gift of two pallets of wipes, National Wiper Alliance's in-kind donation will support Buncombe County's Emergency Operation Center for distribution to first responders. The rest will head out to a number of agencies including Homeward Bound, ABCCM, The Western Carolina Rescue Ministries, and Buncombe County Partnership for Children which serves over 50 childcare centers that are preparing to re-open, just to name a few.

A Strong Spirit of Community Service
Donating several pallets worth of product is just one example of how Buncombe County native, Jeff Slosman, and his wife Debra Slosman are both committed to their community. They are long time donors and members of our Tocqueville Society, a giving circle for donors making significant annual contributions and often providing crucial volunteer leadership.
Students pitched their small business ideas to local business owners who not only provided feedback on the business ideas, they also invested small amounts of their own money to help the students launch their products for sale at a fair later in the year at the school.
"What I loved about the "Cougar" Tank experience was that the students were immersed in this same sort of project-based learning, giving them skills that will remain relevant to their future careers while also practicing their ability to communicate," shares Debra. I was so very proud of each of the participants addressing all our unfamiliar faces, taking in our constructive feedback, and making the most of an experience that beat the heck out of just ‘doing homework’. Mrs. Portugal was able to creatively engage her 7th-grade students and the results of their teamwork and critical thinking produced were really impressive.”
