Special Projects


This program provides new outfits, underwear, shoes, socks, backpacks and school supplies for kindergarten through 5th-grade children for the first day of school. We also administer a workbook fund for children from low-income families throughout the school year.

School Supplies

Thanksgiving Baskets

Participating church volunteers prepare and deliver food baskets to needy senior citizens in our area. Youth sort and pack non-perishable food items that are donated by churches and people in the community. Adults deliver the baskets on the Monday morning prior to Thanksgiving.

Family Christmas Outreach

Each member church provides gifts and household items for a specific number of low-income families. Food is provided through the food pantry, and donations are collected through the community, schools and churches. Volunteers sort and pack the food and other items and distribute them at a designated pick-up site on the Saturday prior to Christmas.

Christmas Presents

Flock around the Block

The only fundraiser Interfaith conducts to provide for our projects to the needy, this 5-K walk/run takes place the first Saturday in April. It is open to all ages, and preregistered participants receive t-shirts. Runners’ time is officially clocked. Join us for this family friendly event and help support Interfaith.
