We invite the Fourth Church neighborhood and community to a monthly drive for food, clothing, and household items. Donations go to Fourth's ministry partners serving those in need locally and in the greater DMV.
Saturdays, July 10 & August 14 | 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, this is a DRIVE-THROUGH event. The collection is hosted by the Youth Ministry in partnership with Missions Local Outreach. See below for specific needs for this month.
- Mark your contributions “Collection” or “Food” and place them in the trunk of your vehicle.
- Please wear a face mask.
- Drive to the covered entrance on the Ridgefield Road side of Fourth Church.
- Use the outer lane and remain in your car for safe physical distancing. You will see tables set up for sorting donated items.
- Release the trunk, and youth staff or volunteers wearing masks and gloves will unload your contribution.
