First Presbyterian Church of New Castle is coordinating and dispatching teams to leave June 4.

We will keep you updated as information comes in.  Please only donate the listed items.

All donations can be brought to First Presbyterian of New Castle, 125 N. Jefferson Street from 9:30 – 4:00.  For information call the Church at 724-652-7706.

Thank you SO much for your help in this effort.  To God be the glory as we say “Yes Lord” and allow Him to move through His body, the church!
