The Trading Post
The Trading Post is an Outreach Center where God’s love is at work sharing and caring for people in our community.
The Trading Post is an outreach arm of Watermark Wesleyan Church. Our mission is to display God’s love to the greater community by meeting everyday needs and developing caring relationships in an atmosphere that nurtures dignity and hope.
We care for the basic food, clothing, and infant needs of 25,000+ families (40,000+ needs) per year! Our outreach circle is widespread and includes many southern tier communities in Erie County, Cattaraugus, and Wyoming counties. We serve many rural pockets that neighbor Springville where little to no emergency resources are available.
We have half price every Wednesday. And we are accepting good quality clothing, shoes, jewelry, accessories, small household items, & toys.
Over $1,000,000 worth of food and clothing is redistributed through our programs each year. We do all this on a very frugal budget of less than $70,000 per year. We reach rural areas that have great need, serving the northern most part of Appalachia! Many of these families are even more disadvantaged and live in greater disparity than their urban counterparts.
“If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.”
1 John 3:17-18
