We are now planning our 2021 Back to School Project! Thanks to the generous donation from the Max and Victoria Dreyfuss Foundation and the Rotary Club of Westerville, we hope to be able to help many more students this year. The Rotary has blessed us with a $1,500 annual donation for the next five years. This donation will cover our operating expenses which will contiue to allow us to return 100% of all donations to our families.
We are very grateful for both of these organzations! If your family needs some help with back to school, you may pick up an application at the Westerville Public Library. There is an acrylic box on the brick column in the parking garage that holds the appliations. You can also download the application directly from our website from our "forms" tab. These are the only two options to receive an application. We will not be handing them out in person or mailing/emailing them to anybody.
We currently have two locations to drop donations of school supplies/ book bags. One is located at The Westerville Community Center and the other is located in The Westerville Public Library in the youth services department. We serve grades K through 12 and will find a home for any donation we receive!
Westerville Caring and Sharing (WC&S), is a community-centered 501(c)3 charitable organization that reaches out to Westerville City School District students/families who are in need. The purpose of Westerville Caring & Sharing is to help people get back on their feet, especially around back-to-school and holiday time.
Westerville Caring and Sharing serves Westerville students who qualify for the subsidized lunch program. WC&S also provides school supplies and holiday gifts to students whose families are having economic difficulties due to job loss, illness, or disaster.
Our organization coud not have the impact it does without our amazing volunteers! We encourage school groups, church groups, businesses, and any members of our great community to visit and see their incredible generosity in action.
Our mission is to encourage individuals, businesses, civic, church, and school groups in the Westerville area to care for the less fortunate and to share their resources of time, funds, and energy. Please visit us on facebook for updates and information on our latest project!
