About WW Social Justice Committee

The West Wind Social Justice Committee (SJC) meets after service on the first Sunday of every month. This group works to make a positive impact on the community in which we live. We are always open to new ideas and participation.  If you are looking for a way to get involved and lend a hand, come and join the efforts of the SJC!  - Melissa Hearn, SJC Chair
