    • Cleaning Supplies: dish soap, paper towels, shower gel, bleach
    • Other items: Paper napkins, Tupperware containers, LED light bulbs

    Westminster provides dinner, dinner hosts, and childcare on Monday and Tuesday nights during our volunteer week with Families Moving Forward. Parents attend house meetings and receive life skills training, while volunteers watch the children after dinner. Volunteers are needed for Monday, February 26, and Tuesday, February 27.

    Childcare volunteers (18+) need to complete child protection training and background checks. If you have completed Westminster’s Child & Youth Protection Policy Training in person, that qualifies. Contact: Louise Holland.
