This continues to be a difficult time for our community with the many who are in need of food, shelter, emotional support, and clothing. Check out the ways you can help. Please bring your donations to FPC and we can deliver them for you.
Help support those who are currently being housed at Centennial Park Campgrounds. The following are the current greatest needs:
