Compass for Kids
Westminster hosts this weekly after-school program of homework help, life skills, and hot meals for at-risk children from Graham Elementary, partnering with Central Baptist and providing numerous volunteers. Participating children are also supplied with nutritious food for each weekend. Compass has continued in adapted form during the pandemic, meeting children’s academic, social, and nutritional needs despite the inability to gather in person. Westminster has also provided $5,000 in supplemental funding during the crisis.
Get involved: Opportunities include the chance to be a Classroom Helper / Leader, Reader and Book Club Leader, or food and supplies delivery volunteer.
Kemmerer Village is a Presbyterian Child Care Agency which helps children and youth facing stress and turmoil in their lives to attain skills and dignity and become well-adjusted members of family and society. WPC funded Kemmerer with $2,000 in 2020, and several members are directly involved with this ministry. We also collect box tops to contribute to their educational programming.
