The Wynnton Neighborhood Network (WNN) was established in 1985 by a group of interfaith congregations with the goal of pooling their resources to help people in need throughout the community. Over the years, the congregations have changed but the mission has not.
Since 1985, St. Thomas Episcopal Church has rented office, storage, and work space for our volunteers to serve our clients. During the 1990’s, WNN moved temporarily to the former Sherwood UMC while St. Thomas underwent some renovations.
During the challenges of COVID-19, Wynnton Neighborhood Network has adapted to keep volunteers and those we serve (clients) safe by wearing masks, cleaning our pantry/offices/storage areas daily (thanks to St. Thomas), limiting number of volunteers within the space, keeping clients in their vehicles (instead of coming into the building), and changing policies on number of visits and amount of financial help available for utility assistance.
Currently there are eight congregations (see the list below) who help provide the volunteers, leadership, financial and food support for this all-volunteer organization. WNN provides emergency food and utility assistance to those in Muscogee County.
