As an urban meeting, Wilmington Monthly Meeting feels called to address issues that are important in our community. Our Peace and Social Justice Committee has often taken the lead in focusing our attention on these issues. Some members of that committee have been instrumental in the New Beginnings, Next Step program.  This is a thriving program that creates a community of support, reinforcement, and accountability for those seeking to move forward with their lives while still in prison. Additionally, the program helps men and women successfully make the transition from incarceration to freedom. We will hear from John Kornegay, one of the leaders of the group.

Children's Program: We will have First Day School for children of all ages. Childcare will be provided in the Nursery. 
For Quarterly Meeting we will be assembling Hope Totes during First Day School. These are bags that we get from the Sunday Breakfast Mission, which is a few blocks away that include daily necessary items. Help us do this by bringing some of the following items.  Any contributions are appreciated: Toothbrushes, Brushes, Combs, Shaving Cream, Lip Balm, Deodorant, Tissues, Shoelaces, Socks, Disposable Razors

Directions:  Wilmington Monthly Meeting is located at the intersection of 4th & West Streets in downtown Wilmington.  Drive time from West Chester is 30 minutes.  Follow US202 South to I-95 South, and take the Fourth Street / MLK Blvd exit.  At the bottom of the exit ramp, turn left onto 4th St.  Turn left at West Street (about 5 blocks from I-95); Meetinghouse is immediately on your left.
