First Presbyterian Church has a mission to Perry County. The mission
focuses on providing material needs such as shoes and school supplies to
our Perry County partners. For instance, First Pres is partnering with
Robert C. Hatch School in Uniontown in Perry County, Alabama.

parishioners to donate classroom supplies and put them in the Perry
