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.
