Collection for West Chester Food Cupboard

Normally, Westminster conducts a monthly food collection for the West Chester Food Cupboard (WCFC), donating approximately 400 pounds of food each month. Volunteers collected the food weekly, and make two deliveries a month to the WCFC. However, during the pandemic, this ministry has been on hold, and no deliveries have been made. Recently, there has been an increase in demand for food and other items, since the extra unemployment subsidies expired. Currently, there is a need for personal care items (toothbrushes, toothpaste, bar soap, shampoo, conditioner, toilet paper,, and baby wipes). These items are particularly important as they are expensive and cannot be purchased with food stamps. To meet this need, the following drop-off event is planned from 9am-12pm on September 26. Volunteers will be at the main portico to collect contributions in a "no contact" fashion, so donors will not have to leave their vehicles. Questions? Contact Ann Hatfield.
