For 110 years, Wellesley Friendly Aid has been there for residents in their times of greatest need, but that doesn’t mean the venerable non-profit doesn’t also know how to throw a party.
Help them celebrate a century plus of care and concern on Sunday, October 20th, 2pm – 4pm in the Arnold Wakelin Room of the Wellesley Free Library. There will be a birthday party (that means cake!) at the gathering jointly sponsored by Wellesley Friendly Aid, Wellesley Free Library, and the Wellesley Historical Society. Celebrants will go back in time to 1909 with refreshments, music, photographs, and children’s games from the early 1900s as well as a presentation by Wellesley native, Tory DeFazio.
Some of the services offered by Wellesley Friendly Aid include:
- medical equipment loans
- camp scholarships
- financial aid for emergency expenditures
- social activities for the elderly
- support for first generation high school students through the college application process
A group of dedicated trustees and volunteers provide this support to Wellesley residents with the help of generous donations from townspeople and local businesses.
