WGC Emergency Response Network Request - We Did It, Thank You!

Many thanks to everyone who took action today and donated to help teen moms, dads, and their babies in need in our community.

We asked, and our network of women philanthropists responded - and in a short period of time we raised $500, which the WGC will match with $500.

Our Emergency Response Network is typically utilized for donations up to $1,000 to help an individual in need. However, during this unprecedented COVID-19 public health crisis, today we invited donations to help numerous teen mom and dads in need through the Teen Parenting Program.

Wilde Lake hosts the Teen Parenting Program for the entire county, so donations support students from across HCPSS, not just Wilde Lake. Over a dozen teen moms, dads and their babies are in the program and the funds from the ERN will be incredibly important in helping these students and their families focus their often-limited financial resources on other vital needs since they won’t have to worry about restocking diapers and wipes.

Please Note: Wilde Lake High School Principal, Marcy Leonard, has organized a diaper and wipe drop off tomorrow - Monday, March 23 at Swansfield Elementary from 10:45 am - 12:00 pm to support teen parents. Any kind of baby wipes are appreciated, and diapers in sizes 2,3,4 and 5 are needed - open packages are welcome.

Thank you for your help!
