Community Service Projects
Looking for some after school activities for your Kindergartner through 6th graders?
Would you like your child to be active in some community service activities?
Then the Good Works Group is for your family!
This multi-religion group will meet monthly and will work on a variety of projects centered around caring for our world, our friends, and our neighbors. Perhaps we’ll help with a garden or maybe we’ll make cards for the sick, or think about the elderly in nursing homes or kids in the hospital.
There will be time for snacks and games, as well as projects. Of course, we’ll be open to ideas that others suggest, and we surely hope you’ll let us know of needs in your neighborhood.
The Group meets on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at the Westhampton Church.
All students in grades Kindergarten through 6th grade are welcome to attend and will be able to take the bus from the school to the church. Adults will meet them at the bus and provide a snack before working on projects. Pick-up time will be at 4:30. Mark your calendars now!

The Westhampton Food Pantry
Wednesdays 5PM - 6PM
Fridays 11am - 12PM
Saturdays 9AM- 10am
Anyone needing food is welcome. Many people use our food pantry. To assure that everyone in need has access to food, please be respectful when picking up items. Please wear a mask while at the food pantry.
The pantry is located in the lower level of the church. Enter through the street side door. The food bank is at the end of the hall. To better serve you, please fill out our log sheets each time you visit the pantry.
Those looking to donate to items may do so during the hours that the pantry is open. During off hours, food may be dropped off at the Miller's (7 Stage Rd). Perishable food should be placed in the fridge or freezer.
If you have any questions regarding the food pantry or have a specific need, you can call the church at (413) 527-4204 and someone will get back to you.
In addition, we compiled a list of Assistance Resources for those in need.
Thank you to all those that help us provide this service to the community.
Take and Eat Program
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 to provide meals on the 4th weekend of every month. It takes a lot of volunteers and we could use your help! If you would like to participate it is easy, please review our COVID-19 protocol and then sign up at: https://tinyurl.com/takeandeat
The Kiva Program
Kiva is a non-profit organization which developed a lending platform that facilitates making loans to undeserved individuals all around the globe.
For as little as $25, people can take an active role in helping others improve their life and the lives of others. Kiva is special, because 100% of every dollar lent to the platform can go towards making loans.
We have participated in 108 loans through Kiva. This is having a big impact around the globe. One of our loans helped a baker get ingredients to grow his business, another has helped a weaver get materials to make hammocks to sell. Other loans have assisted fishermen and farmers.
If you would like to learn more about the folks we are helping, please take a moment and visit our program page: https://tinyurl.com/wc-kiva
The best part of Kiva is that when a loan is complete, the money can be loaned out again and again and again. If you would like to join in our effort to help others, you can send a check to the church with KIVA in the memo and we will direct those funds to be used in our Kiva program or you can setup your own Kiva account. It is a great way to honor a loved one.
