Wellspring Women’s Center hosts volunteers from Zurich
Zurich volunteers recently worked with United Way certified partner Wellspring Women’s Center to serve breakfast to women and children in the Oak Park community. Volunteers helped prepare and serve the meals to guests, in addition to having friendly conversations and getting to know people coming through the doors.The volunteers enjoyed getting to know each other better and making a difference at the same time. and the staff at Wellspring Women’s Center were extremely accommodating and wonderful hosts.
If you haven’t had a chance to check out this wonderful organization—don’t put it off any longer. The benefit to the community and the friendly way they provide services in a home like environment truly makes this organization stand out. Serving so many individuals daily means there is a great need for many items to be donated. Check out the list on the website and stop by soon and drop off some items while you see the programs in action.
Wellspring Women’s Center is open Monday through Friday, offering a nutritious breakfast daily to over 200 women and their children daily as well as a play area for children. During the afternoon, guests may obtain mental health counseling from a staff social worker and interns. Wellspring staff members assist guests with referrals for needed services, and local agencies provide outreach at Wellspring so that community resources are not duplicated. Thank you again to the volunteers from Zurich and the staff of Wellspring Women’s Center!
