Canned Fruit Drive


Pender’s canned fruit drive for Western Fairfax Christian Ministries continues until September 13th.

Many people are struggling during this pandemic. They are supplementing their diet with food bank donations thereby diminishing reserves at an accelerated rate.

They need our help right now! Please bring cans of fruit to the drive through entrance of Pender UMC, M-F, 9am-5pm.

Place your donations in the blue shopping cart! We filled our first cart the morning after the drive was announced.

Let’s keep this going!  Thanks again! ~ Rev. White
