OUR NEXT COLLECTION DATE

Saturday, October 8
10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

We invite the Fourth Church neighborhood and community to a monthly collection of food, clothing, and household items. Donations go to Fourth's ministry partners serving those in need locally and in the greater DMV.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE
  • Mark your contributions “Collection” or “Food” and place them in the trunk of your vehicle.
  • Please do not donate any items in glass containers.
  • Drive to the covered entrance on the Ridgefield Road side of Fourth Church.
  • Use the outer lane and remain in your car. You will see tables set up for sorting donated items.
  • Release the trunk, and youth staff or volunteers will unload your contribution.
