Gifts of our time, talents, and money to those in need are an important part of the life of First Congregational Church.
In the past our gifts have helped worldwide recipients in Mexico and India, the NACCC Ministerial Assistance Fund, national groups like Ministering To Ministers and Children's Defense Fund, and local groups like Crossroads Urban Center, Salt Lake Educational Foundation, the Wounded Warrior Project, the Ulster Project, Volunteers of America, Utah Youth Mentoring, and Fourth Street Clinic.
Additionally, we have donated items of new warm clothing to The Road Home from the Share the Warmth Tree, in cooperation with the Downtown Kiwanis Club every year at Christmas time. We also make more than 600 sandwiches every quarter for Catholic Community Services, and have numerous food and clothing donations throughout the year.
