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.
 
  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.
 
Voices For Sanctuary Benefit Concert
On Sunday January 28th,2018, at 4 pm the Leverett Chorus, directed by Anne Louise White, will perform a benefit concert, "VOICES FOR SANCTUARY", in collaboration with the First Church Amherst’s Immigrant Sanctuary Fund, at the Jewish Community of Amherst, 742 Main Street, Amherst, MA.
This concert is a benefit to support the family of Lucio Perez who is in Sanctuary at First Church Amherst.
In addition to raising much needed funds for Lucio’s family, struggling economically without Lucio’s income, the concert will celebrate through song the loving, generous, strong community that continues to grow in support for Lucio, immigrant justice, and resistance to cruel deportation policies. Suggested $10 donation (or more if inclined) at the door. Donations will go to the First Church Amherst’s Immigrant Sanctuary Fund, are tax deductible, and will go to Lucio’s family.
