Ordinary Magic Online Event Details

This past year has challenged us and demanded new ways of responding to the needs of those in our community deeply affected by the pandemic, financial insecurity and racial injustice. At Ordinary Magic, we shared how Wilder has shown up with more creativity, empathy and determination to stand strong with families, how our work continues today -- and we gave a peek into the future of Wilder’s community impact.

During the Ordinary Magic program, attendees heard courageous stories of hope, resilience and impact that show how we continue to:
