Deacon’s Special Project
Please continue to think about those that are financially poor and food poor. The Deacons of our church are encouraging you to bring non-perishable food items to the church for the Fort Cherry Helping Hands Program.
During the current closure of our church facilities, due to the COVID-19 social distancing protocol, you can leave your non-perishable food items at the front door of the church or if it is raining, please place your donations at the Fellowship Hall door (As you face the main church doors, the Fellowship Hall door is to the left under the covered walkway.). Someone will be at the church every day, Monday thru Friday from about 8:00 am till 4:00 pm to take these items inside the building. The Deacons will take your donations to the Fort Cherry School District, which distributes these items to their student families in need.
FORT CHERRY HELPING HANDS is a monthly, school-based food distribution program that provides a monthly box of food to any child's family living in the FC District (ages infant to high school senior). Approximately 43% of our student population live with food insecurity. This program helps fill the gaps at home providing food to our families who need some assistance. Funding for this program is from solely private sources and comes from businesses and churches in the area as well as individuals in our community. Monetary donations are greatly needed to continue to fund this program.
