About Us

Let Us Introduce You…

Winston Area Community Partnership (WACP or “wake up”) formed in 1999 in response to two devastating incidents. Two middle school students died tragically by firearms within five weeks of each other. A broad base of community leaders responded to these tragedies by joining together in an effort to improve the community. They decided it was time to “wake up” and form a partnership.

WACP encompasses the rural community of Winston and the outlying communities of Dillard, Lookingglass, Olalla and Tenmile. Through generous contributions, grants and volunteer hours, the organization has successfully enhanced community services, completed beautification projects and improved collaboration throughout the area.

Partnership Meetings
WACP Partnership Meetings are held on the second Friday of each month at Carlos Restaurante in Winston. Join us for this no-host lunch at noon, where local service organizations and the City of Winston share news, requests for assistance and kudos. You’ll leave inspired by all the good things happening.
