“We try to help those experiencing challenges in life with things like lack of food and clothing by delivering those needed items with kindness, care, and compassion. We do not charge for the items delivered, nor do we charge for the delivery. We simply care!”   – Dan, WPE Volunteer and prior Warehouse Manager.

Meet our Board

Members of our Board of Directors and team members in key operational roles are volunteers. Without our volunteer leaders and our circle of friends that support WPE through gifts of time and talent, our small and dedicated staff of 20 employees would not be able to fulfill our mission.
