COMMUNITY SERVICE & INVOLVEMENT
As part of the mission of First Presbyterian, all students at Children First are engaged in community service activities throughout the year. These activities range from recycling, to Jump Rope for Heart, to collecting items for needy students at public schools, to serving at the Open Door Food Kitchen.
