Politics at its best

Westfield Fire Captain, Jason Gunning, was deployed as a part of Indiana Task Force One to help assist those impacted by Hurricane Florence. The task force that was deployed consists of 86 members from Fire Departments in and around Marion County along with civilians from around the state.  Members are comprised of specialized areas including Technical Rescue, Search, Hazardous Materials, Medical and Logistics.  The team has been helping rescue residents and pets in the high flood waters in North Carolina.  They are expected to stay until later this week when the waters recede and everyone is moved to safety.  Please keep Cpt. Gunning and the rest of the Task Force in your thoughts as they work to aid those affected by the hurricane.

Neighborhood Chat

Do you have some gently used clothes and/or coats that you would like to donate?  There are currently two great ways to help those in our community...

Centier Bank and Washington Woods School have partnered to collect gently used clothes as part of the Goodwill Collect and Connect Program to support the Westfield Youth Assistance Program (WYAP).  Donations can be dropped off at the Westfield Centier Bank branch.  For each bag of clothes donated, WYAP will receive a $5 Goodwill voucher that will be given to the families in the program.  

Starting September 17 Wittler Orthodontics will be collecting gently used coats of all sizes to donate to Open Doors of Westfield. Bring in your coat(s) and you can enter to win a $50 gift card to Amazon. The collection will end October 31, 2018 with the drawing on November 1, 2018.

If you have plastic shopping bags that you no longer need, please consider donating them to Open Doors of Washington Township.
