Collection Drive to Benefit Martha’s Table
During March, we’ll be collecting unopened travel-sized toiletries (such as shampoo, conditioner, and soap) for Martha’s Table, a center in Washington, D.C., that supports families in need. These toiletries will be given as Mother’s Day gifts. Please place your donations in the collection bins in the Narthex or Fellowship Building.
DC Scholars at Stanton
Many thanks go to the Trinity membership for their February donations of tissues, antibiotic wipes and gels to DC Scholars at Stanton. There was enough to supply each of 32 classrooms and the office with all three items. These supplies were greatly appreciated. Mentoring continued in February emphasizing Black History, reading Facing the Lion by Joseph Lekuton and examining natural history specimens from Science Day.
Have you ever considered being a tutor? Now’s your chance. No experience necessary! Curriculum and supplies are provided. Please contact Suzanne Hamilton, firstname.lastname@example.org,703-759-6264.
February Collection Drive for ChildHelp
Thanks to everyone for their thoughtful donation of socks and t-shirt for the children living at the ChildHelp Alice C. Tyler Village. These items are always needed for the 62 children who live there. They really appreciated your kindness!
Since the 1990s, Trinity has been making sandwiches for Martha’s Table in the District. That adds up to somewhere around 250,000 sandwiches made and delivered to the hungry and homeless! To pull this off every second Sunday of the month, we need volunteers to get the bread, prepare the sandwiches and deliver them. Can you help out any month this year? Look for the signup sheet in the Fellowship Building or contact Molly Sprouse at email@example.com.
