craftsCrafts for a Cause has been busy making lots of fleece and flannel items to ward off the cold and provide comfort to hospital patients and shelter residents. The group made a batch of fleece blankets for homeless families at the Carpenter’s Shelter in Alexandria. Special thanks to Emily Weaver for delivering the blankets last month.

We’ve also been working on new projects for Fair Oaks Hospital, which requested fleece and flannel lap blankets and pillows for chemotherapy patients, arm pillows for breast cancer patients, and knit caps for cancer patients. Thanks also to Nell Gilmore for knitting a boatload of newborn baby caps, and to Peggy Trapp for making the knit caps for adults while she was recovering from surgery. Trinity’s crafts ministry enables us to bring a lot of warmth and comfort to all ages!

Our work sessions this month will be Mon., March 9, and Mon., March 23, at 7 p.m. in Room 124. Everyone’s welcome to come help us cut out fabric, sew, stitch and stuff a variety of projects. For more information, contact Molly Sprouse at 703-356-4896 or mollysprouse@gmail.com.

Missions Update

Dan & Chris Moore have now been in Honduras for two months. They are having an experience of a lifetime volunteering at The Leadership Center. TLC provides a three-year free educational program provided to young women to learn English, leadership and entrepreneurship. Dan is teaching business classes and Chris is teaching Psychology and Computer Literacy. They and some students have taken field trips to visit other towns to meet with business owners. You can catch up with their weekly notes back to us on the Missions Blog.


Church & Society

March 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 church narthex or Fellowship Lobby.

Thanks to everyone for your donations of dental hygiene products during the month of February. These products will be used to make dental health kits for SHARE and Christ House.

DC Scholars at Stanton

Many thanks goes to the Trinity membership for their February donations of tissues, antibiotic wipes and gels to DC Scholars at Stanton. These supplies were greatly appreciated.

The construction at Stanton prevents us from tutoring as we have in the past. We continue to assist middle and high school students from the McLean area when they visit and teach Stanton students during the winter and spring. If you are looking for a way to be involved, please contact Suzanne Hamilton, 703-759-6264, suzanhamil@aol.com.
