Fairview Elementary School adopted by FPC Presbyterian Women
We have adopted Fairview Elementary School this year. Earlier in the year we took school supplies for the students. For November we are “treating” the teachers. We invite members and friends of FPC to bring goodies which we will deliver each Friday of November. There will be a basket in the narthex in which to place your prepackaged treats. Sorry, we cannot take homemade goodies. Our first Friday is November 5. Please deliver your donations to the church by noon on Thursday of each week to help fill up the Red Basket for the teachers.
