We provide our services on behalf of our donors to all residents in the 14580 ZIP Code area. This includes not only Webster but the northern third of Penfield, as well. Anyone who is in need can contact us.
In 2022, the Webster Community Chest assisted hundreds of families in the 14580 zip code. For most of these situations, we provided advice and guidance to receive needed services from other agencies in the county.
In some cases, there is nowhere else to turn and the needs are immediate. The Webster Community Chest may be able to step in with its own assistance.
Demand for help from the Community Chest was unprecedented in 2022, when we received 370 calls from individuals and families who requested assistance. Examples of the support we provided include:
● Preventing 49 families from being evicted
● Stopping nine families from having their utilities shut off
● Making twelve aid payments to individuals and families for emergency needs
● Helping two families whose homes were destroyed by fire
● Sending lower-income children to a week at summer camp
● Assisting parents in sending their children to developmental therapy programs at Heritage Christian Stables
Recipients of our assistance are your family members, friends, and neighbors. If you supported the Webster Community Chest in the past, we thank you. If you haven’t given, please consider making a donation today!

Shirley Miller was the Community Chest benefits counselor for almost three decades. During those years, Shirley became the most visible part of the Community Chest working with those who most needed assistance. Each year, the Webster Community Chest awards scholarships in Shirley’s memory to Webster high school seniors who have performed significant community service.
