The Outreach Committee is continuing to stock the Blessings Box, located near the church driveway exit.
The Blessings Box (also known as a Free Little Pantry in some communities), is a tool for neighbors to help neighbors. The box will be stocked with an assortment of items, including nonperishable foods, baby diapers and supplies, as well as basic household supplies and personal care items.
The box is a place community members may take something they need or donate something for others. All can be done at one’s convenience, and anonymously. Donations may also be left in the basket in the church foyer. All items must be sealed and within expiration dates.
Special thanks to the owners at Shag Bark for their generosity with a discount on the materials for the box, as well as assembly of the box.
Take a blessing, bring a blessing, be a blessing!

Searching yahoo and Google? Shopping on line? Our easiest and most underused fundraising opportunity is waiting for you! Go to Goodsearch.com and type in "Westchester Congregational Church" where it says, "choose your cause," and access many store websites through Goodsearch and Goodshop. The church earns a penny for each search and the stores listed make a donation to WCC, either a percentage or a dollar amount, based on the amount of your purchase. Many popular stores are listed. This is not a scam; it really works. See Alice with any questions.
