The Take and Eat Program

During this challenging time, the Take & Eat program is more important than ever.  We are taking extra measures for the safety of both our volunteers and those that are recipients of the program.  Take & Eat is an essential service and will continue serving those in need. 

If you know of someone that could benefit from the program?  Please contact the church and let us know. 

The Take and Eat ministry is a non-denominational effort that serves elders and home-bound people in need, preparing and delivering weekend meals for up to 100 clients in Easthampton, Southampton, and Westhampton, on the first, third, and forth Saturday of the month. 

 

St. Philip's Episcopal Church and the Westhampton Congregational Church are working together in this program.  Our weekend is the 4th weekend of every month.  It takes a lot of volunteers to provide these meals.  We could use your help!  If you would like to participate in this worthy cause, you can sign up to volunteer at:  https://tinyurl.com/takeandeat

Kiva Project

We have started a new outreach project in partnership with Kiva.  Kiva is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that’s earned a 4 out of 4 star rating from Charity Navigator.

 

Through crowdfunding, Kiva is able to offer micro loans all around the world. 100% of funds lent on Kiva go to funding actual loans. It is a very effective program and 96.7% of the loans are repaid.

KIVA Update:

We are now making loans as part of our Kiva Project!  Did you know that the average salary in El Salvador is only $7,500?  There are many needy folks in that part of the world and a little money can go a long way! 

 

Our first loan will help a young man obtain a refrigerator.  If you would like to read his story, you can find it here: https://tinyurl.com/kiva-wc1

 

We’d love to have you join us in our efforts! 

 

Donations to the project can be sent to the church, just be sure to include a note directing your support to: The Kiva Project.  It does not take much.  Spare change can go a long way.  If we all gave up one cup of coffee this month, we could easily make another loan.  The best part is Kiva has a 96.7% repayment rate, so once a loan is repaid, we can relend that money and help someone else.  Join us on this new project!  We’ll keep you updated.
