This page provides information on community events that may be of interest to Wesley members, community events taking place at Wesley, or community events that involve members of our Wesley family.  Please take advantage of these opportunities to support and participate in events in our local community.
A Better Chance Fall Foliage 5K Walk/Run
Please join us for the 47th Annual Amherst-A Better Chance Fall Foliage 5Kwalk/run on Saturday, October 20th.  The course begins on the Amherst town common and will include beautiful vistas during peak foliage!   You can also create your own fundraising page to support the ABC house and our Scholars! The ABC program has been in Amherst for nearly 50 years and has changed the lives of over 125 high schoolers. The community has played a critical role in making this program happen, so please sign up today.  This will be a family event with lots of great post run entertainment.

 Correctional Center Volunteers Needed
The Western Massachusetts Regional Women's Correctional Center (WCC) in Chicopee seeks volunteers for their Mother/Child Visit Program on Saturday mornings from 9:30 - 11 am.  The goal of the program is to support incarcerated moms with maintaining their mother-child bond despite the difficult challenges of incarceration and separation.  As a volunteer in this program, your primary responsibility would be to monitor, support, and role model healthy mother-child interactions in a safe, clean, and child-friendly environment.  Please call Tracy Burton for details at 413-730-6952.
