Community Resource Coordinator-Westside FreeStore
The Westside Free Store Ministries (WFSM) is a faith-based, charitable organization on Columbus’ west side since 2004. Through the volunteer effort and generosity of many people, WFSM serves thousands of people in need each year. We are proud to serve a diverse set of clients. Full meals are served three days per week. The clothing pantry provides seasonal clothing, along with small household items, personal care products, toys, books, and shoes. Recent additions to our programming are a Monthly Diaper Club, Work Ready Clothing program, and Home Starter Kits. Our vision is to continue using the clothing pantry and meals program as a means to further impact the economic stability of the community while providing a place where dignity is preserved and individuals have an increased sense of worth. Volunteers are the backbone of this ministry.
