Winter Clothing Drive for Ukraine

Donations will be shipped to Ukraine and to scouts in Moldova who are providing winter clothes to Ukrainians who have sought refuge there. Questions? Contact Den Leader Dave Berthiaume.

We have two exciting opportunities to join the staff of The Falls Church that we'd love you to share with your networks to ensure we get the best person for the job.
