The proceeds raised at the craft fair will go towards the church’s Mexico Missions. Each year, church members travel to Mexico with a construction and medical team and set up clinics in the local churches. They also assist the local churches in treating people in the area.

The church will also be accepting food for their Matthew 25:35 Food Pantry. They host a food bank all year with an emphasis on Thanksgiving baskets. Each year the church serves hundreds of families in conjunction with the Community Service Department of St. Charles Parish, Senior Citizens Community Center, the local Red Cross and area schools.

The fair will be held at St. Charles United Methodist Church at 1905 Ormond Blvd. in Destrehan.
