Spring Donations for WARM to be Collected During Epic Proportions Run

Posted: Wednesday, May 1, 2019, 6:55am

Help Us Reach Our Goal!

It's time for our annual spring donation drive for WARM, the Westerville Area Resource Ministry! We're collecting non-perishable food, household items, and financial contributions throughout the run of Epic Proportions.

How can you help?

Our goal is to collect at least 251 items! We encourage audience members to bring 1 – 3 donation items with them to the show. There will be bins near the box office to collect donated items.

What does WARM need?

The WARM pantry's most needed items change throughout the year. See the list below for suggestions, but know that all non-perishable foods and household items are greatly appreciated!

Most needed items for May:

  • Canned sauerkraut, spinach, beets, lima beans
  • Baked beans
  • Canned fruit
  • Canned chicken or tuna
  • Toothpaste
  • Shampoo
  • Size 3 diapers
  • Toilet paper
  • Paper towels

Is Curtain collecting financial donations for WARM?

Yes—financial donations are also welcome! Each dollar given to warm equals 2+ meals served. Cash or checks (may payable to Westerville Area Resource Ministry) can be given to the box office or House Manager.

Curtain Players will be delivering received donations to WARM throughout the Epic Proportions run, so your generous contribution will be put to good use right away!

In 2018, WARM served more than 6,100 households, providing nearly 370,000 meals and more than 111 tons of fresh market produce to those they serve. Some of their programs include their Feed Food Pantry, Westerville Area Kids Lunch Club, Share Bac A Pac, and the Kids Lunch Club Produce program. More than 10,000 volunteered 26,406 hours in 2018 to help WARM.

Curtain Players conducts two campaigns a year for WARM, usually during our December and May productions.
