Donations Welcome

The WFLC currently has a 18 year old bus that is creeping along on life support. We are establishing a special fund so that we can look forward to a day where we can find a replacement. All donations to this project are greatly appreciated. We are located in a very rural part of Marlboro County and rely greatly on our bus for transporting people to and from the Center on a daily basis. See the link below to donate today!

Some Important Needs of WFLC

Another Heating & AC Unit

Our facility has some age on it and we now need to replace another AC unit for the front half of the building. The cost will be a little over $6,800.00. Any contributions made toward this will be greatly appreciate. 

Building & Flooring

After over 30 years of use we need some new floor covering throughout the Center. The building is in need of painting on the exterior, along with replacing various rotted trim boards.


A group from Chapin United Methodist Church helped with the flooring in the Multipurpose room as well as other improvements to the Center in May and June of 2018, come visit and check it out.

Paper Products

The WFLC is always in need of paper products such as; toilet paper, paper towels, paper plates, and napkins. However, we currently can best use gift cards from Lowes and Walmart. Space is limited at the Center and gift cards take up less space. We can also benefit from school supplies such as: pencils, erasers, copy paper, book bags, color markers, and crayons. Your support allows us to help others in need.
