Wellness Program Fund
Some Wellness Center participants are unable to afford our Weight Management Program, despite meeting qualifications to join. By making a tax-deductible donation to the Wellness Program, you can change lives. We have witnessed firsthand how weight loss empowers participants, changes their perspective on life, how they feel minute to minute, and helps them realize their very best selves.
