Giving back to the community

Westminster Presbyterian Church has forged partnerships with many local non-profit groups working to address the most compelling needs of our community. We call them our Doorstep Missions.

Food for Lane County

Once a month church volunteers prep and serve a hot meal in the Community Dining Room. Others volunteer as individuals in the Dining Room on 8th Street or at the warehouse on Bailey Hill Road. Our Youth collect canned goods during the week preceeding the Super Bowl.

Shelter Care

Members donate much needed household items and clothing during our annual Special Needs Drive in January 2014. We provide Christmas gifts to Hawthorne House residents via the Giving Tree.

First Place

Westminster supports services for families struggling to find housing. We welcome temporary residents in our church parking lot as they seek permanent housing.

During the weeklong Shelter offered at Westminster in the spring church volunteers prepare and serve meals, play games with children, and befriend adults.

Sponsors

Our church supports the work of this agency to reintegrate ex-offenders into the community. We donate clothing and household items during the Special Needs Drive. Some hire day laborers to do yard work or carpentry.

Station 7- Looking Glass

Support services for runaway and homeless youth. Donate clothing and games during Special Needs Drive.

Rainbow Village

Provide Christmas gifts to children via the Giving Tree. Westminster volunteers serve on the Rainbow Village Board. Deacons prepare food boxes for Christmas Dinner.

Eugene Mission

Support services for men, women and families in need of housing and job training. Donate clothing year round. Donate surplus food.
