Local Outreach

In 2016, Clarendon had several fundraising events to support local ministries.  We sold coffee and pastries in an Election Day coffee bar at our church which is a polling place plus bags of peanuts and peanut brittle.  We also sold Christmas trees at our first Christmas Tree lot and raised $7000+ in all our efforts.  Some of the charities we suppport are:
