For the past three years, Faith Presbyterian Church has supported the Lawrence Community Gardens. The Gardens are a youth-operated farm focused on the growth and distribution of fruits and vegetables for the local area for free or very reduced prices.
The donation Faith Presbyterian makes will help go towards covering the summer stipends of the around 50 youth hired this year! The contribution is part of the denomination’s Pentecost Offering which is taken across the nation on Pentecost – this year, May 23. All the funds are directed toward children and youth. You can learn more about the Pentecost Offering here and more about Lawrence Community Gardens here.
