Church & Society: April 2014

By Kelly Slone

Interested in Volunteering in Our Community?The Church & Society Committee is seeking new volunteers and ideas on how Trinity can serve the community! Please contact Kelly Slone at kslone@nvca.org and find out how you can help make a difference. There are a variety of projects the Committee is actively involved in: tutoring children at Stanton Elementary, making lunch and visiting the homeless at Christ House, and working at SHARE, Martha’s Table, Habitat for Humanity and ChildHelp. Our next meeting is April 29 at 6 p.m. at Trinity.

April Collection Drive
During April, Church and Society will be collecting items for two organizations: Christ House in the District and the Carpenter’s Shelter in Alexandria. For Christ House, which provides medical and hospice care for the homeless, we’ll be collecting new and gently used casual clothing for men (khakis, sweatpants, sweatshirts, t-shirts). For the Carpenter’s Shelter, we’ll be collecting juice boxes (100% fruit, please), granola bars and coffee. The 80-bed facility provides food and shelter for homeless men, women and children, along with child care and employment assistance. Leave your donations in the collection bins inside the Narthex and the new Fellowship Building.

Thank you! Thank you for the travel-size toiletry items collected during the month of March. Personal hygiene kits will soon be assembled using those items, and given as Mother’s Day gifts to women coming to Martha’s Table.
