Five Points Washington cares about you and the communities we serve. Throughout the year, we have chosen to partner with local organizations to either donate needed items, volunteer time, and provide programs and services that enrich and benefit all ages. Check in with us to see a list of our ongoing initiatives that you can help join in our cause or catch a movie for free! Our staff wants you to join in our #FivePointsCares programs and projects!

current service initiatives

CENTRAL ILLINOIS INTERMEDIATE LIFE SKILLS PROGRAM

Five Points hosts the life skills program each month, so far the program has used the aquatics center and taken a body flow class. Our mission is to give each child the opportunity to further build and use everyday motor skills and for them to have fun!!

METHODIST WELLMOBILE AT FIVE POINTS

The Wellmobile will be at Five Points every third Tuesday from 9:00-11:00 AM. This service is a consumer education program designed to promote healthier living in our community. It brings free or low-cost screenings throughout Central Illinois. Caring and trained staff members provide education on healthy living, early detection of disease, disease prevention and more. It is our hope that patients and physicians use our services to monitor the improvement of results during dietary, lifestyle or medication changes. Services include: Blood pressure, cholesterol, blood glucose, and spirometry (lung function) are also included with these screenings.

RED CROSS BLOOD DRIVE

Each month on a designated Monday, Five Points Washington offers space for the American Red Cross to do their blood drive in our event center space.
