Local Ministries

A Simple Gesture

Westover is partnering with A Simple Gesture Food for regular food drives. A Simple Gesture is a local non-profit that partners with churches and civic groups to provide a steady supply of food to local food banks and pantries in order to end hunger in Greensboro and Guilford County. They also provide a door-to-door food collection program. Our food banks simply do not have the food to meet the demand that is placed upon them. All of them have waiting lists to fill, and many on the waiting lists are children who go hungry on the weekends and when school is not in session.  

Help feed children and families in need in our area by picking up a green bag at the local wall in the Westover lobby—available the 2 Sundays prior to collection day. Westover’s collection benefits Backpack Beginnings, Out of The Garden and Greensboro Urban Ministries.

Bring filled bags back on collection days! Westover will be a part of a regular collection throughout the year so you will have many opportunities to use your green bag—see below!!
