West Broadway Community Ministry

Summer is here. But poverty doesn’t take a holiday. The cupboards at West Broadway Community Ministry are very low on staples. Please help us out if you can. We need canned meats, canned soup, Kraft dinner, peanut butter, canned fruit and vegetables, pork and beans and breakfast cereal. We are open weekdays from 9-5 except Tuesdays. We are at 222 Furby Street.

  • Office admin note – Summer is especially hard on families who rely on school breakfast and lunch programs for their children. Please remember these families on your next shopping trip.
