Dear Wylie Families and Friends,
June is an exciting month...spring is coming to an end, schools are getting out, and the start of a new summer begins! 
Food BankFood Bank in Need
The Wylie Center needs your help. Our food bank and baby item closet helps many families in need by providing them with non-perishable food items and baby items like diapers and wipes.
We are seeing more families in need of these items, and we are running out of supplies.
Please help us by donating items to families in need. 

Examples of needed items are: canned food, vegetables, pasta, rice, beans, spaghetti sauce, mac & cheese, diapers, baby wipes, baby wash, and baby gear (strollers and car seats)


Water Safety


As it heats up in the Inland Empire, more of us are going to head to the pool. Taking a few extra steps can help ensure you all have a great time and stay safe.  Here are some tips to help keep your child safe this summer.
1. Stay Close, be alert, and watch children in and around the pool
2. Learn and Practice Water Safety Skills
3. Have the appropriate pool equipment

Wylie Center Continues Green Efforts


Did you know that The Wylie Center recycles? We collect old cell phones and used ink cartridges and recycle them. We use the proceeds to support our programs. If you have an old cell phone laying around and any old ink cartridges, bring them in today! Help us continue our green efforts and support a Wylie Center program at the same time.
