Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.

Welcome to WHEAT, where we serve the Western Hanover community.

THANK YOU to Liberty Middle School and Patrick Henry High School. For the 2018 Spring Food Drive they each collected an amazing amount of food to help our Western Hanover community. LMS was able to contribute 1,177 lbs of food and PH joined in with an additional 1,164 lbs. Thank you to all the amazing students who worked so hard for such a good cause! Below is a picture of the Liberty class winners. Please go to our “Pictures” tab to see shots of how much food they collected.
