The Waverly Family Resource  Center

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The proceeds from Mission & Benevolence's first Doug's Fish Fry To Go fundraiser was $711.00. We donated this to Waverly Family Resource Center to be used as needed. Jackie Spencer received the donation from Jim Parks, chair of M&B, during the January 5, 2020, Minute for Mission during Service (photo at left). She provided an overview of her personal journey with the Center and her current involvement with ongoing and new programs. Jackie is the Credentialed Senior Parenting Educator and Family Development Program Lead Educator for Cornell Cooperative Extension.

The Waverly Family Resource Center, now in its 21st year, is a program of Cornell Cooperative Extension that provides drop in play space, parent-child activities and parenting workshops. As an example, they recently conducted a six week Kids in The Kitchen program, "a hands on experience where children and parents have an opportunity to make recipes together. The recipes are simple, kid friendly and low cost!” 

Our thanks to the congregation whose spirit of giving made this project a success.
