A dream built on donations received its largest gift to date that’s catapulted Delaware’s Veterans Watchmaker Initiative (VWI) into a new realm.
“It overnight became a world-class school.”
Sam Cannan’s grin from ear to ear showed his gratitude when words failed him. His Veterans Watchmaker Initiative (VWI) that started up officially last fall after years of dreams and plans, received a donation of $130,000 in sophisticated and rare equipment from the largest watch company in the world, The Swatch Group.
