Whitney's Wings mission is to spread joy!

We are a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit with an aim to provide Free Family Fun for our community as well as programs for low-income and underserved families.

We created Whitney's Wings to celebrate the girl with the button nose and cute toes. On her due date of December 6 2020, Whitney Coleen Frederick left this world the same moment she entered. She was 7lbs 4.5oz and 20.5 inches long.

As a way to celebrate Whitney and keep her memory alive, we created Whitney's Wings.

We love spreading joy in her name!

We serve the West Liberty, Tipton, West Branch, and surrounding smaller communities in Iowa.
