COMMUNITY SERVICE

Every year TheWISEorg gives back to the community through its tri-annual service program!

We are always seeking opportunities to serve communities and enrich lives through our tri-annual community service program.  Each of our service projects require the solicitation of others in order to ensure its success. For example: in order to feed over 200 homeless persons we must recruit, on average, 15-30 people to assist with food preparation, packing, cooking, etc.  Therefore, if you’re interested in volunteering for one of our tri-annual projects-or-if you would like for TheWISEorg to provide service of some sort within your community, please email Mrs. April Felder at  april.felder@thewiseorg.org

Also, assisting and supporting local high-school students to obtain their Community service- graduation requirements!

Have a High-school student seeking to fulfill their Community Service hours?  Come join-in a WISEorg service project; all forms will be signed at the completion of the service.    Email Mrs. April Felder for more information and/or to sign-up – april.felder@thewiseorg.org
