Friendly Aid Celebrates 110 Years of Service
For 110 years, Wellesley Friendly Aid has been there for residents in times of need. Among the services we offer are: loaning medical equipment for free, providing camp scholarships, helping with emergency and hardship expenditures, creating social activities for the elderly, and supporting first-generation high school students through the college application process.
On Sunday, October 20, 2019, Friendly Aid celebrated a century plus of care and concern at the Wellesley Free Library. The event was jointly sponsored with Wellesley Free Library and the Wellesley Historical Society. Celebrants went back in time to 1909 with refreshments, music, photographs, and children’s games from the early 1900s. There was also a presentation by Wellesley native Tory DeFazio about life in Wellesley at that time.
