Between March and December of 2020 the people of Trinity donated more than 2,000 bags of food to our partner organizations and food banks.
On Friday, January 15, we will be collecting from 9 AM to 2 PM in the back of Trinity Hall for both of our partners Belmont Community Resource Services (a ministry of Belmont UMC) and Welborne Food Pantries.
Here is a list of items that are needed:
Food Needs for Belmont:
Mac & Cheese, canned vegetables, canned fruit, cereal, rice and crackers.
Food Needs for Welborne:
Cereals, soup, peanut butter and jelly.

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR GENEROSITY DURING OUR HOLIDAY COLLECTIONS!
Heart Work for January
A special thanks to everyone who has donated to our Friday collection drives. Your hearts have
done effective work in responding to our community needs.
I can’t tell you how moved the leaders and volunteers are when we drop off the collected items at their sites. In many cases they are just about speechless, and yes, tears of thanks do well up in their eyes.
Your response in November and December was extraordinary, but we can’t back off now. Just because the holidays are gone, doesn’t mean that the needs of the people in our communities will stop.
We will continue to make weekly requests of food and other items to you. Updates will be provided each week that will include a specific list of needs for the nonprofits we are assisting.
In closing, we want to thank Karen Adams for her behind the scenes coordination with the Sherbourne Food Pantry. Also, a special thanks to Tom Rockhold who has been my pinch hitter on some Fridays. And I want to thank the Trinity staff for their support, especially Ronnie Johnson, Kim Tingler, and Kim Johnson.
Many thanks on behalf of the individuals and families you have helped. If you have questions, please contact Bill Pike: firstname.lastname@example.org.
How We’ve Served
When the pandemic began we started our Friday Collections (learn more about those above). We started with collecting food and have since added other community partnerships into the mix. Below you will find our running tally of items collected and given to our neighbors during these difficult times. Thank you, Trinity, for all you have given and continue to give.

Trinity’s Stitchers have been hard at work using their skills to care for others. They’ve been making masks firsts for employees of a plant in Hopewell and then for families, friends, and for Trinity.
They’ve also been making prayer squares for those working and for patients in local hospitals.
They are also now making headbands with buttons to help relieve mask pressure on ears.
