Community Outreach

With WCPA's community outreach program, we have a wonderful opportunity to teach and show our children the joy of helping others! Each month, the WCPA partners with nonprofits and local organizations to provide enriching service and educational opportunities for our families and children. Events are open to all Wayland residents who are interested in contributing!

This year we will cover topics such as helping families living in homelessness, cheering up children fighting cancer, helping our environment and animals living at the shelter.

Upcoming Initiatives

Month of March: Cradles to Crayons

This March: Gather your gently used or new kids’ clothes, shoes, outgrown outerwear, small toys, books and clean diapers to donate to Cradles to Crayons!

There are two ways to get involved:

1) Donate items March 1-20 at Loker (large storage unit outside the school), Claypit Hill, Happy Hollow, Wayland Middle and High Schools, the Children’s Way or the Wayland library. A big thank you to Nicolette Mascari for sponsoring part of the storage costs!

2) Volunteer to sort donations on March 21 (9-11am) at the Loker elementary cafeteria. Please email Marci at to sign-up and bring your kids to this family-friendly event to give them the hands-on experience of doing something to help others.

Cradles to Crayons delivers new and gently used donations to children in low income, homeless or emergency situations in MA. Check here for a list of donations Cradles will accept:
