The Mitten Tree
During the Advent and Christmas seasons, the members of First Presbyterian bring mittens (and hats, gloves, scarves, and toys) to decorate trees located through the church. These items are donated to the Women’s Shelter and other local agencies.
Share the Heart
This wonderful outreach was started here at First Presbyterian. Many local charitable groups are questioned as to any pressing needs that require around $30 or four hours of volunteer time. These requests are collected, and then members of the church volunteer to meet a particular need. Share the Heart is done around Valentine’s Day each year.
