Missions: Honduras Trailer

The Trinity Honduras Trailer will be loaded onto a sea container on February 14 and we have plenty of room. Donated items are distributed directly to needy people in Honduras by Art for Humanity. Your donations will either be used or sold by families that are severely economically challenged. Almost any gently used item is acceptable. Please tie shoes together. Bags or boxes of clothing for women, children and youth are always needed. Used furniture, carpets, appliances and tools are appreciated. You can get the Trailer padlock code by calling the Church Office. Questions or heavy items that require assistance – call or email Dan Moore.
