Children of all ages had an opportunity to select free books at the Vacaville Farmers Market to take home for summer reading during recent years. From sturdy board books for preschoolers to novels for high schoolers, Wylie organized the donations and distributions of thousands of books over five years.
Large numbers of students from Paden and Fairmont schools, as well as neighborhood children, enjoy annual visits to the Pumpkins on the Hill on Trinity Drive hosted by Shepherd of the Hills Lutheran Church. Wylie volunteers annually to greet students during these walking field trips.
Each Friday night, meals are provided by local groups at Epiphany Church downtown. Residents in need of a meal are welcome to eat in the social hall or take a plate to go. Wylie provides cookies and works with her church on the second Friday as they prepare to serve those in need. Volunteers in Vacaville have amazing programs for our residents in need. As City Council member, Wylie will work on creative public policy solutions to address challenges such as homelessness so appropriate services are available.
More About Jeanette
Vacaville residents are always excited during the holiday season when Merriment on Main and the Festival of Trees are scheduled. Wylie joins many other volunteers who give of their time to work shifts and provide treats. When everyone works together, great things can be accomplished. She also plays in a handbell choir you may have heard while strolling down the street during the festivities or at concerts in Vacaville.
Besides time and money, Wylie gives of herself. With just one more pint at her next donation, she will reach the 8 gallon level as a regular blood donor to help those with critical medical needs.
Successful communities are possible only with the hard work and dedication of many, many volunteers! Vacaville is a great place to volunteer through schools, churches, and many civic organizations.
We need a full-service city that provides for all.
