Thank you!!!! to all those who have helped us in our time of need. The Center has replace all three of its failing AC units in 2018.  Thank you so much for your support of the WFLC. 

Building & Flooring

The Center has had many supporters over this past summer helping to make it a better place for years to come. Thank you to those who helped with these many improvements to the Center.


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.


The Salt - N - Light Group from Pennsylvania have again come through huge for the Center by helping to paint the outside of the Center this past summer, along with many other great projects at the Center.

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.
