Offering: This month, we share half our undesignated offering with our very own Sharing Locker, one of Westminster’s outreach projects that has been in operation since February 2010.  We reach out to anyone in Washington or Kent County as well as Cranston residents who are experiencing a need for assistance by offering household goods, a seasonal farmer’s market, and/or pet food.  The Sharing locker is, by design, closely aligned with the Westminster vision and mission. The Sharing Locker continues to serve clients even during the pandemic. To donate
