Adopt a family this holiday

7 Nov

HOPE Ministry in Webster, our town’s only food cupboard, is asking our very generous local community to help them out this holiday season by “adopting” a family.

HOPE Ministry provides Christmas every year for more than 100 families in Webster. Through their program, individuals, families, organizations and businesses can adopt a family by providing at least two gifts per child (you will get some suggestions provided by the families) and if possible, also provide food for a Christmas dinner and/or gift cards with which the family can purchase food. The family’s wish list will be sent to you along with other details.

Items are needed by Wednesday, December 12, so if you’re interested in helping out you should contact Hope Ministry ASAP so you have plenty of time to shop and gather the gifts.

For more information or to sign up, contact Chris at shrtstp701@aol.com or call HOPE Ministry at 265-6694.

HOPE Ministry is located at 1450 Ridge Road, Webster. Even if you can’t adopt a family, please consider donating toiletries, diapers in sizes 4-6, laundry and dish detergent, because those items are always needed.

Got school supplies? Don’t need ’em?

10 Aug

Summer 2018

If you’ve got kids (like me) who have long finished high school, but still (like me) have boxes full of new spiral notebooks, packages of lined paper, and unopened packages of pens and pencils tucked away, here’s a great way to clear out the clutter and help local families.

The Webster Public Library is hosting a school supply drive to benefit Hope Ministry, an agency which responds to special or emergency needs of Webster-area residents.

suppliesHope Ministry holds a “Back to School Night” every year to distribute new school supplies to low-income families with children who live in Webster. The collection deadline at the library is August 15.

Check out the list to the left to see what supplies are being requested.

Stop by any time the library is open and drop off your donations in the collection box across from the Check Out Desk.

The Webster Public Library is located at 980 Ridge Road. Entrance is off of Van Ingen Drive behind the plaza.
