WPBC raises $10,000+ for food bank

The Weston Park Baptist Church has raised more than $10,000 for Weston Area Emergency Support, the local food bank.

Castlepoint Numa, who plan to build on some of the church’s property, donated more than $5,000 to help the church meet their goal.

The food bank has seen a huge increase in need since the beginning of the pandemic, with visits almost quadrupling.

Weston Park Baptist Church is raising money for food bank

Our local food bank has seen a huge increase in need this year—almost quadrupling from 650 visits a month to 2,500. For 31 years, the Weston Park Baptist Church has been a big supporter.

This year, the “food distribution will be very important to families but must be done in a very different way”, so the church is hoping to raise $10,000 to deliver hampers of food and personal-care products this holiday season.

The church will also be collecting non-perishables between November 30 and December 5 at the UPX station, and again at the church on December 7.

Donations can me made through GoFundMe.
