Report from the Wayland Community Fund

The Wayland Community fund is a volunteer organization that helps Wayland residents in financial need. Established 1997 through a bequest from Suzanne Leavitt the WCF has helped several hundred Wayland residents and provided well over $500,000 in assistance. The WCF receives no public support. It is funded, by the remainder of the Leavitt gift and by contributions from people in Wayland. The volunteers cover the organization’s expenses so that 100% of every dollar contributed goes directly toward helping Wayland residents.

At this point in its fiscal year (ten months) the WCF has provided $24,024 in assistance. Rent payments have accounted for $9,365 in expenditures; $7,291 has been spent on utility payments, and $2,168 spent on health-related bills. Other assistance has been given in a variety of areas including children items and food.

WCF brochures are available in the Wayland Town Building and the Wayland Public Library. Additional information can be found on the Town of Wayland website.

Help give the gift of mobility

Spring Cleaning? If you are cleaning out your basements, garages, etc, and you happen to come across a no longer used wheelchair or any mobility aide please give Wheels for the World a call! Wheels for the World distributes wheelchairs and mobility aides such as; canes, crutches, rollators, and walkers to be given to disabled children and adults in countries where they can’t get them. We also take wheelchair parts such as; foot/leg rests, tires, cushions, and etc. to help in restoring donated wheelchairs to brand new condition. Our job here at Wheels for the World New England is to collect the donated items and get them to the restoration facilities in prisons. The inmates who are part of a special program with Wheels for the World learn the skill to make new wheelchairs. The skills they learn are helpful to them when they get back into the community and are looking for jobs.
Can you help us give “the gift of mobility”? Would you like to help us by donating or collecting wheelchairs, and the mobility aides? If so please contact Cindy Leonard at 508-653-3743.

We look forward to hearing from you!
