Wellesley Friendly Aid has launched its annual fundraising campaign with solicitation letters to Wellesley residents, businesses and other
WFA, which has been operating for more than 100 years, provides financial aid or temporary volunteer assistance to Wellesley families experiencing emergency or hardship situations. It also funds scholarships to send children of Wellesley families in need to summer camp and summer educational enrichment programs. Through the Wellesley Connects program, WFA assists first generation Wellesley High School juniors and seniors with navigating the college application process. In addition, WFA loans medical equipment, at no charge, to Wellesley residents of all income levels and, as a participant in the Town’s English as a Second Language program, funds the cost of books and provides meeting space used by the program.
Individuals or families in Wellesley who could benefit from any of these programs or services are encouraged to contact Karen Mondell, Program Administrator, at 781-235- 3960 or at [email protected] to determine if WFA can be of help.
