I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
-Stephen Grellet, Quaker missionary
Wilmington Friends Meeting, in Christ’s service, seeks to do all the kindness that we can. Here are some of the ways we go about that:
Food Pantry and Utilities Assistance
Wilmington Friends Meeting provides members of the Wilmington community emergency food aid and financial assistance with utility bills. Contact the meeting office if you need assistance.
Clinton County Adult Day Center
The meetinghouse is the home of the Clinton County Adult Day Center, which provides a safe and enjoyable place for elderly and disabled members of the community to stay while their caregivers attend to other responsibilities.
Support for Your Father’s Kitchen
Members of Wilmington Friends Meeting have taken responsibility for staffing Your Father’s Kitchen on the first Saturday of every month. Your Father’s Kitchen is a program of Sugartree Ministries. If you would like to join one of our work teams, let us know!
Local Housing Ministries
Wilmington Friends Meeting founded and continues to play a role in organizations that provide housing for elderly and low income individuals in Wilmington and Blanchester. Quaker Apartments and Prairie View Apartments are among the facilities that are part of this network.
Volunteers help meeting members and others relocate their belongings to a new residence.
