Woodlawn tries to stay well informed about how to help people in our community. The East Dartmouth Food Bank is run out of our Heritage Church (White church) each Thursday.
We also have the DUNGEN, a used clothing store, also in the White church. You can find clothes and some other household items for very reasonable prices. The DUNGEN is open Thursday and Saturdays 9AM - 12PM. It is generally closed on Holidays and also during the summer. Check the calendar or call the office (902)434-8302 if you are unsure if it is open.
We have a very ACTIVE Outreach committee who work tirelessly to advocate for those who are financially struggling. We have folks who are active on the "Face of Poverty" and other groups working to make the world more equitable.
Are you looking for help in the community?
The Dartmouth Helping Tree is a great tool for knowing how to access community help you need. It was designed by the Dartmouth Community Health Board, Community Health Team, HRM Community Development, and the Self-help Connection to assist service providers and inform residents of the many helping resources available. If you or someone you care about is experiencing a problem in any of the areas listed, follow the arrows on the flow chart to find resources that may help.
