Angel Tree-At Christmastime, clothing and gifts are gathered for local children in need to help them have a blessed Christmas.

Trendsetters-Arizona tax credit donations go towards a weekly after school leadership program for children in grades 4-6.  Trendsetters is based out of Fountain Hills Charter School.

“Weekender Bags” Project-FHPC Mission has contributed money quarterly to help fund food bags for local children in need so that they may have some sustenance during the weekends.  In conjunction with another local church and our own Presbyterian Women’s groups, volunteers go to AZ BrainFoods to help pack these bags once a month.

 Changing Lives CenterThis is the women & children counterpart of the Phoenix Rescue Mission. 

 

Previously, we brought music back into their lives through    the purchase of CD players and many, many CD’s. 

We also give small gifts to them at Christmas and Easter each year. As they try to rebuild their lives, we try to soften their world with a little holiday love.
