The “Hometown” Community Chest was created to serve the people of Webster in ways not provided for by other social service agencies. On March 30, 1945 community representatives met to discuss the continuation of a group formed in WWII known as The War Chest Committee. The War Chest Committee had served the community well and it was the intention to consider establishing a local Community Chest to continue its service based work. By 1948, the evolution was complete for the forming of a Community Chest. On April 22, 1948 the Community Chest was incorporated and continues its work to this day. The present Board of Directors meets seven times a year and helps to coordinate the workings of the Chest. Webster is the only nearby town to have its own Community Chest.
