Blanket Sunday
Vandergrift Presbyterian Church parishioners either donate blankets or donate $5 (or more) for the purchase of one (or more) blankets.
Sponsoring a Child (through Compassion International)
A tax-deductible contribution of just $38 a month connects your child with a loving, church-based Child Sponsorship Program that provides food and clean water, medical care, educational opportunities, important life-skills training, and most important of all, development in the Christian faith.
Shepherd's Heart
Blankets and coats are collected and donated to Shepherd's Heart in Pittsburgh where they're distributed to the homeless.
Operation Christmas Child
During National Collection Week in November, "shoe boxes" are filled with a variety of gifts that will delight a child. (such as toys, hygiene items, school supplies, gum, hard candy, tee shirts) and, through Samaritan's Purse, those boxes are distributed to needy children throughout the world.
One Great Hour of Sharing
During Lent, the church collects money for this great cause that provides funding for disaster relief, for waging the war on hunger and for teaching people how to farm and raise animals to provide for themselves and others.
