NEW FOR THE 2014 FAIR!

We pride ourselves for being the only FREE FAIR that we know of in Pennsylvania. This year we are asking attendees of the fair to bring nonperishables to be donated to the Unionville Food Pantry as a not required admission fee. There will be a trailer located in the fair building we would like to fill for the food bank.

The Unionville Food Pantry is a community food pantry, located at Unionville Methodist Church and run by Compassionate Ministries of Unionville UMC.  It is supported by local churches, organizations and Freedom Schools.  It is a community effort to feed and clothe those in need in New Sewickley Twp. Freedom, Rochester, and New Brighton areas. The pantry is open the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month from 6-8 p.m. There are people in these areas that are having a hard time feeding their families and these are the people we are trying to serve.  If you know of someone that needs their help, you can call Unionville UMC at 724-843-0862. We are always in need of paper products, crackers, peanut butter, jelly, spaghetti-o”s, canned fruit, cereal and cleaning supplies.

Our challenge to you is to help fill the trailer located in the fair building with food items, paper products and cleaning supplies. They will be thankful for all donations to the pantry. Please help us reach our goal of filling the trailer.

 


Tabloid information is available at the Grange (kitchen entrance) and at many local businesses in

The Fair is conducted by Big Knob Grange on their property in New Sewickley Township.
