Community

 

In addition to our great events throughout the year, WMF members have access to wonderful programs like the Helping Hands Program, our Merchant Discount Program, Community Outreach, our online forum and message board, and more. We also offer our members resources like school guides and local activity directories.

Our Merchant Discount Program includes both ongoing discounts and special discount days.  The ongoing discount program offers standing discounts to over 60 local businesses in and around Wellesley.  On discount days, local businesses offer an exclusive discount to WMF members.

 

Our Helping Hands program matches members needing a bit of help with meals or errands with other members willing to lend a helping hand.  Many members use this program after bringing a new baby home.  Assistance may also be arranged for members recovering from illness or medical procedures, or members struggling with a family emergency, such as a hospitalization, illness or death.

The WMF is proud to contribute to local charities through our Community Outreach Program.  Our outreach has included collecting professional women’s clothing for Dress for Success; collecting hats, gloves and mittens for the Wellesley Friendly Aid Association; running a holiday toy drive for Medway House Shelter; organizing food drives for the Wellesley Food Pantry and much more.

We offer comprehensive preschool, activity and independent school Guides to our members. The guides are updated on a rotating schedule and are a great tool for navigating big decisions or just finding something to do on rainy day.

Members also get access to the WMF online forum, via BigTent, to post on our active message board, browse classified listing and event calendars, and download membership-related documents.  Members use the online forum for everything from finding a plumber to selling toys to renting a vacation house.
