Local Mission Opportunities

  Community Food Distribution

We host a mobile food pantry in conjunction with the West OhioFood Bank. This bi-monthly project provides a free source of food to all who are in need.

  Community Dinners

We provide a free meal for all the second Sunday of EVERY month from 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m. in the Great Room. We also have a free book table.

  Chopin Hall

Chopin Hall is a food and clothing distribution Center opened in 1984. First Presbyterian Church and eleven other area churches were originally the sponsors.  Now, forty-two churches sponsor this project. Chopin Hall is staffed by over 120 volunteers and a part-time administrator and operates solely through donations from churches, other civic organizations, and private individuals.

  Hancock Christian Clearing House

In 1994, First Presbyterian Church took the lead in the organization of the Hancock Christian Clearing House, a cooperative community effort to address the common concern among Christians that have a desire to help the needy. The Hancock Christian Clearing House provides assistance to individuals and families in need of temporary financial aid.

  Health Fair

Sponsored by the Synod of the Covenant and Maumee Valley Presbytery, opportunities for half-day involvement in health fairs are available.  Volunteers travel to a nearby site and staff stations for height/weight, dental, blood pressure, and cholesterol screening, among others.

  Findlay Hope House

Hope House, a residence for area homeless women and children, utilizes volunteers in two areas: child care--for one hour periods during meetings, and as staff replacement on the weekends.

  Habitat for Humanity

Each summer, volunteers work with the local Habitat for Humanity chapter to help build homes for low-income families.  Volunteers assist Habitat personnel in all aspects of home construction.

  Operation Christmas Child

Provides basic necessities for children throughout the world in a package as small as a shoebox. We also serve as a local collection point for the Findlay area, collecting thousands of shoeboxes each year.

  Rehab House

Community Action Commission offers local residents the opportunity to assist in the rehabilitation of vacant, old homes to make them habitable and available for purchase by low-income area residents.  Volunteers assist CAC personnel in all aspects of home renovation and are welcome to work on an as-available basis by contacting CAC.

  Salvation Army Soup Kitchen

Twice a year, the Presbyterian Women sponsor a Soup Kitchen for area needy persons through the Salvation Army.  Volunteers are needed to provide food (either purchased items or entrees prepared from a specific recipe). Additional volunteers are needed to serve the noon meal at the Salvation Army building.
