Wesley Woods has a heritage of service dating back to 1954, when it was founded as a ministry for the elderly by the North Georgia Conference of the United Methodist Church. Wesley Woods is grateful for its longstanding partnership with the North Georgia Conference and particularly the annual Motherís Day Offering collected through its churches, which provides for approximately 25% of the charitable and unreimbursed care at Wesley Woods communities each year. Over the years, Wesley Woods has cared for hundreds of retired Methodist clergy members, many with meager savings and modest pensions who have benefited greatly from charitable assistance. Wesley Woods welcomes residents of all income levels, races, gender, and faiths.
For more than 35 years the Wesley Woods Mother's Day Offering has generated vital charitable care funds to assist residents in need. Today, providing charitable care is the most acute challenge that Wesley Woods faces. As older adults live longer, more are exhausting their financial resources and relying on Social Security as their only income. Some experience health problems that go far beyond what Medicare benefits will cover. Many struggle to afford simple necessities. Mother's Day gifts from caring donors enable these individuals to enjoy a decent, dignified quality of life.
We urge you to please give generously to the Mother's Day Offering. Mother's Day Offering envelopes are mailed directly to local churches. If you have any questions please call or email Kathryn Banks at 404-728-6204
