Making A Difference in Wooster, OH
Westminster is a giving community of believers and seekers. Over and above the countless hours that members give to the work you see under "Get Involved" are the many other gifts our members provide throughout the year:
- generous donations of food to enable our local People to People Ministries to feed the hungry
- participating in the local Meals on Wheels program
- providing thousands of labels for a Buehler’s supermarket program exchanging labels for money which is used for local needs. We also sold hot dogs at Buehler's, with proceeds going to Coats for Kids.
- 115 school and 96 hygiene kids assembled with our donations of materials and shipped to church World Service for disaster areas
- opening our homes for the Bed and Breakfast program to support agencies such as the Viola Startzman Free Clinic
- preparing and/or purchasing home-baked pies and Westminster’s Famous Hearty Italian soup with proceeds going to meet local needs including help for those struggling to secure employment
- purchased blankets for Church World Service. For many in famine and disaster areas these blankets provide much needed shelter.
