New Programs @ The Wilson Center

Fighting Food Insecurities

In addition to the Center’s Food Pantry, our efforts in fighting food insecurities has now expanded to quarterly food drives which are available free of charge and without restriction for area residents. Depending on the time of year and selection/availability of items, various hunger-relief programs will feature boxes of fresh produce, Thanksgiving turkeys with all the trimmings, and other food options to help enhance nutritional health and overall wellness.

Diversity and Inclusion

In an effort to strengthen the Latino community, the Center has partnered with the Mercer County Family Support Organization (FSO) to host an ongoing series of parent support group meetings, titled “Padres Unidos” (Parents United). Scheduled every second Tuesday of the month, these free, monthly meetings are designed to provide a safe place for parents in the Hispanic-American community to find support, learn about community services, and talk about their needs.

Lunch and Learns

To help further support and education area senior citizens, plans are underway to provide free monthly lunches that come with a side dish of useful information and resources. Dubbed “Lunch and Learn,” these fun and interactive programs will offer helpful cooking demonstrations, lessons on better understanding today’s technology to stay connected with family and friends, discovering new hobbies and hidden talents, and other beneficial topics.

Wellness @ Wilson Series

With a focus on educating the general community, the Center is working to develop a series of free in-person classes and virtual presentations to help residents better understand and improve their physical, mental, emotional, financial, and spiritual health and wellbeing. Following a schedule of one in-person class and one live webinar per month, presentations will cover various wellness topics including how to better manage stress and anxiety, the benefits of yoga and tai chi, heart disease and diabetes education, CPR training, self-defense lessons, household budgeting, and more. Virtual presentations will be recorded and archived on the Center’s website for continuous, on-demand viewing.
