Winter Wear Give-away for Schuyler Inn Families

November 14, 2019

4:30 pm - 6:30 pm


This is the second year of this event to provide Schuyler Inn families with warm scarves, gloves, mittens, hats and socks as they face the winter season ahead. 

Nancy Ost will do the shopping for the items, so your monetary donations for this cause will be most appreciated. You can make checks out to Westminster with Schuyler in the memo line. You may also purchase $10 gift cards from Walmart or Price Chopper as we give these out at any event we hold at Schuyler Inn. Note: some giving folks do not like to patronize Walmart, however, many of the residents at Schuyler ask for those gift cards. 

Volunteers greatly appreciated also for the event.

Volunteers Needed for the Emergency Overflow Homeless Shelter

April 30, 2020


The Emergency Overflow Homeless Shelter, operated by the Capital Area Council of Churches at First Lutheran Church in Albany, will open its doors again for the season in mid-November to serve up to 18 men each night of the week. The Shelter is scheduled to remain open through mid-April. See more details about this volunteer opportunity by visiting this web address:  http://www.wpcalbany.org/capital-region

Westminster provides volunteer services on Sunday nights throughout the cold season. Volunteers serve on a rotating schedule. There are two great options for getting involved in this ministry of service to homeless men in our community:

  • Provide on-site hospitality. Join the team of WPC volunteers who provide hospitality to Shelter guests on Sunday nights.

  • Prepare nourishing dinners. WPC volunteers team up to prepare meals for delivery to the Shelter on Sunday nights.
