Holiday Helping Hands

As we approach the holiday season, there are a number of ways you can lend a helping hand right here in the Minerva Park/Westerville area. Please consider helping these great local efforts and make a difference right here in your own community!


W.A.R.M. Holiday Food Drive

W.A.R.M. (Westerville Area Resource Ministry) provides compassionate, short-term assistance, educational services, and spiritual support in order to encourage individuals to achieve a God-reliant, self-sufficient life while restoring dignity and hope. Minerva Park residents contribute to WARM through the community garden and donated almost 500 pounds of fresh vegetables and herbs last year alone. Volunteers will be around dropping off bags this weekend (Nov. 25-28). Fill your bag up with the requested items listed on the bag and set the bag on your front stoop or curb on Saturday, December 3rd, and WARM volunteers will be around to collect donations. Your donations have a direct impact on families in the Minerva Park and Westerville area.
