Community Parades Brighten Spirits

Thank you to everyone who took part in the Community Parade early in April and the more recent parade featuring the Saratoga Springs Police and Fire Departments at Wesley! These parades through our campus helped to lift the spirits of our dedicated staff and our many residents, who were able to safely enjoy the fun from indoors. Thank you!

Wesley Establishes Employee Food Pantry

COO Dutch Hayward (L) and Dining Services Director David Blizinski announcing the program.

In an effort to ensure our dedicated staff have what they need at home during these challenging times, The Wesley Community has established a food pantry on-site for staff who are in need to receive a bag full of food essentials monthly. Thank you to David Blizinski and the rest of our dining services team for helping to gather and package the items included in each bag. We also want to thank the many donors who have contributed to our Staff Emergency Fund specifically for this Food Pantry program. In addition, we are grateful for the many donations of meals for our staff we have received.


#GivingTuesdayNow is a new global day of giving and unity that will take place on May 5, 2020 – in addition to the regularly scheduled #GivingTuesday – as an emergency response to the unprecedented need caused by COVID-19. We have outlined several ways you can support The Wesley Community during these difficult times as we meet the challenge COVID-19 presents for our residents and our staff. Please consider making a donation on Tuesday, May 5, 2020. Learn More >

The Wesley Foundation Gala Was Canceled, But You Can Still Make A Difference Through Our Share A Step Event!

Unfortunately, we have had to cancel The Wesley Foundation Gala scheduled for May of 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are grateful to the many donors who have supported the gala this year to-date and are asking everyone to instead consider either donating to support our COVID-19 response efforts, or to support Share A Step For Seniors, which will raise funds for our COVID-19 response efforts.

Share a Step for Seniors is our virtual fitness event that invites individuals of all ages to set a mileage goal for the week of June 19th through June 26th. You can get your mileage in with a walk outside, a bike ride around the neighborhood or a run on the treadmill, just make sure you log it! This year we will travel the VIRTUAL distance of one of three popular trails in Adirondack Park! Learn More >

We thank you, as always, for your steadfast support and wish you all good health.
