Throughout May, the spirit of Community Action will be celebrated in west central Wisconsin as West CAP joins Community Action Agencies across the country to celebrate National Community Action Month. National Community Action Month highlights Community Action Agencies and their commitment to fighting poverty on the local level.
West CAP’s plans to recognize Community Action Month include the agency’s Annual Meeting to be held at 5:30pm on May 13th at Old Towne, 903 Cedar Falls Road, Menomonie, WI. Client and volunteer recognition awards will be presented at the Annual Meeting. The public is invited to attend the meeting.
A special showing of “American Idealist: The Story of Sargent Shriver” will be shown at the Menomonie Public Library on May 23rd at 7pm. The Sargent Shriver Peace Institute shares this documentary to illustrate the effect Shriver’s social innovations had during the 1960’s War on Poverty. The film is a moving story of civic involvement and the beginnings of the Peace Corps, Head Start, VISTA, Legal Services and Community Action agencies. A question and answer session will be held immediately following the movie.
West CAP has provided services to low-income residents of Barron, Chippewa, Dunn, Pepin, Pierce, Polk and St. Croix counties since 1965. Programs include homeless prevention, housing development, weatherization, transportation, food access, and adult education.
West CAP is a locally-based, non-profit organization. Further information about West CAP can be found at www.westcap.org. Persons interested in supporting West CAP’s programs by making a tax-deductible gift or volunteering may contact Kristen at 715-265-4271 or visit the website.
