The Fairview Presbyterian Church Food Pantry opened in November, 2002. The purpose was to design and implement a community outreach program for Fairview Township and the West Colunty area. Our mission is to serve with grace those in need of food supplement. We currently serve about 50 families.

We are very thankful for the support we receive from the community. St John's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Girard, St. James Evangelical Lutheran Church in Fairview, St. Stephen's Episcopal and Holy Cross Catholic Churches in Fairview, Fairview School District, various Girl Scout Troops, our local AA organization, Fairview Community Council, Kiwanis Club of West County, and Lions Club have all donated food items, household items, monetary gifts, and their time volunteering. We also receive private donations.

Thank you to Albion Prison for picking up our food order each month at Second Harvest, and to Neuro-Restorative in Fairview for helping set up every month!

We wouldn't be able to do this ministry without our volunteers. Thank you to all who give their time every month with set-up, sorting and distribution. We are always looking for more help! If anyone is interested in helping with anything please call Amy at the church office.

If you or someone you know needs help with food, don't hesitate to call. Recipients must live in Fairview or Girard.

Car Clinic

The Car Clinic ministry is at a standstill at this time. We have gotten calls from people who need help with the maintenance of their cars, but unfortunately we do not have the manpower.

If anyone has a knowledge of car repair, or knows of anyone, and would be interested in continuing this ministry, please contact Amy in the church office. We have such great space and want to put it to good use.

Clothes Closet

          What started out as a Fairview High School program offering warm winter clothing in 2009 turned into a permanent place where one in need of clothing can go.


           Our Clothes Closet is open the first Saturday of each month coinciding with the Food Pantry. People that come to our food pantry can also come and get clothing that they need. We have clothing for men, women, and children.

            We thank the area churches, Fairview Schools, and many individuals for all their donations. The community has come together for this ministry. The response to our request for donations has been overwhelming!

            We receive many beautiful items in mint condition, such as dress clothes and men’s suits. We are in touch with the different clothing programs in the city of Erie and donate needed items to them. The Red Cross has us as a referral when victims lose their belongings in a fire. 

If you would like to donate please call the church office at 474-3914. If anyone is in need of clothing, please call. We would be glad to have you visit our closet anytime for what you need!
