Get Involved


As a WPS participant, you receive the monthly newsletter, updates about WPS events, and access to all of our resources. To begin participating in Widowed Persons Service support groups and events, all you have to do is provide us with your contact information.


We cannot run WPS without the help of our volunteers. We desperately need WPS participants to step up and help out! Remember we are a non-profit organization. BULK MAILING: Can you give just a little time to help with the bulk mailing projects? Enjoy visiting with other WPS participants, while you work on the newsletter bulk mailing project. Volunteers meet at the WPS office, Thursday, May 17, July 19, September 20 and Wednesday, November 21, 2018 at 9:00 a.m. to label and seal the bi-monthly newsletter. There are other similar projects throughout the year. OBITUARY RESEARCHERS: How about researching obituaries from home once a month? Help us find people in need of our services, so that we may help them through their grieving process.

Please contact our office at 538-0101 or email us at if you are interested, or to learn about other volunteer opportunities.


Donors are an invaluable part of Widowed Persons Service and our operations. Without the generous contributions we receive, we would not be able to provide the services that so many in the Greater Grand Rapids area need. All gifts are tax deductible.

Donations can be made swiftly and securely on our website. Simply click the “Donate Now” at the top of the page. Or, if you prefer, you may request a donation envelope be sent to you.
