What’s the mission of the Willow Center?
The mission of the Willow Center is to provide peer support groups for children, teens and their adult caregivers to promote help, hope and healing after the death of someone close to them.
What will the Willow Center do with the Dime in Time grant?
The funds will be dedicated to providing the first fFamily Dinner at the Palouse region Willow Center. At the dinner, the children, their families and volunteer group facilitators share a meal, view a slide show of the families’ loved ones that have died, and listen to an inspirational speaker. The pictures help with creating connections, honoring memories, and normalizing the grief journey. These dinners also increase the bonds among program participants and decrease feelings of isolation.
This event has been enjoyed annually at the Willow Center in Lewiston, a program established over a decade ago, but a Family Dinner has yet to be offered at the newer Palouse-region Willow Center.
What if I know someone who would benefit from the services the Willow Center offers?
We would love to hear from you. Please give us a call for resources, literature, and to learn more about the Willow Center offerings. You can find us online at willow-center.org, you can call us at 208-791-7192 (our Lewiston/Clarkston office) or 208-669-0730 (our Moscow/Pullman office), or you can email me directly at email@example.com.
Besides the services the Center regularly offers, what else do you have going on?
We will be selling tickets for our Little Big Wagon fundraiser starting in November. We take Radio Flyer wagons and fill them with items that relate to a larger theme, such as “Seahawks Tail Gate Party” and “Top Toys of the Year”. We’ll have at least seven wagons and all of the proceeds go to support the children and families of the Willow Center.
This Co-op program is to benefit non-profit, non-sectarian and non-discriminatory organizations whose goals complement or support the Mission Statement of the Co-op.
