1CaniCan

Through your weekly donations we are able to support many ministries at WVC and in the community. These ministries include: A1 Mobile Home Village, Marian House, WVC Pastoral Care for families in need of food assistance, Westside Cares Food Pantry, Northern Churches Care Food Pantry, and Helping Hands Food Pantry. At Woodmen, our goal is to collect 2,500 non-perishable food and toiletry items each week to serve the less fortunate in our city.

We are currently in need of volunteers to help assist with food transportation from the Rockrimmon campus on Saturday and Sunday and the Woodmen Heights campus on Sunday. This involves collecting and transporting food collected in the 1CaniCan bins and delivering them to the A.C.T.S. Resource Center, located off of Garden of the Gods Road. Moderate lifting is required. For more information, please contact Niki Scott.

All we need is you ... and one of your cans.

Drop-off bins are located at each campus for your convenience. Please check expiration dates to keep from donating expired food.
