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.

NEXT COLLECTIONS

Saturdays, October 2 & November 13
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.
