Direct Service Projects (DSP)

Direct Service Projects

Every WHJWC member participates in a DSP.  They are divided into four categories:  Economic Needs, Senior Activities, Children, and Kids on the Block.

Food Pantry

Food Pantry members serve at the Wellesley Food Pantry in food and non-food drives throughout the year.

Senior Activities

Members of the Senior Activities Committee provide direct service at agencies that serve the senior community, which includes Wellesley’s Council on Aging and the Sisters of Charity’s Elizabeth Seton Residence (a skilled nursing facility).

Children

The Children’s DSP works on several projects.  Members work at a local women’s shelter, The Second Step, and at The Walker School.

Kids on the Block

Members on this DSP perform puppet shows to kindergarten and first graders in Wellesley’s seven elementay schools and other local venues.  The themed skits help children understand developmental differences such as cerebral palsy, blindness and learning disabilities.
