Apples for supplies for the Teachers of Oak Grove-Bellemeade Elementary School are ready to be picked! We want all of Trinity to have the opportunity to participate in this project, so we have in-person apples, digital apples and an Amazon Wishlist.
If you worship in person at Trinity or are able to come to Trinity, we invite you to choose an in-person apple from the display boards in the Welcome Center at the church.
Digital Apples/Amazon Wish List
If you are a member of our virtual congregation or are unable to get to Trinity in person, we hope you will select a digital apple or go the Amazon Wish List.
Delivering the Supplies
If bringing the items to Trinity, please double bag them in paper bags with handles. Attach your apple or a list of items and grade level to the outside of the bag. Deliver to the rear of Trinity Hall by Sunday, August 13.
If having the items shipped, please have them delivered to Trinity UMC, 903 Forest Ave., Richmond, VA 23229 and marked “Oak Grove Supplies.” Items should be delivered by Friday, August 11.
If you would prefer to make a financial donation to the Apple Angel Tree, you can do this via check (memo “Oak Grove Apple Tree”) or via ACS (choose “Back to School Supplies”).
What is the Apple Angel Tree?
Trinity has partnered with Oak Grove-Bellemeade Elementary School through the city-wide Micah Initiative for over 15 years. One of our most popular projects each year has been to provide much-needed school supplies. Over 50 Trinity families participate in this effort each year. During the Spring, we meet with the lead teachers for all grade levels at the school and come up with a list of items the teachers would like to receive for their classrooms. There are about 150 apples that can be “picked from our tree” for the upcoming school year.
If you have questions, please contact us! Thanks for your support!
