Church & Society: December News

A Joyful Thanksgiving Feast

A joyful celebration was had by all on Sunday, November 16, for our annual church-wide Thanksgiving Feast. It was a great time of delicious food and wonderful fellowship in Langley Hall. Many, many thanks to everyone who helped organize, prepare, serve, clean up and share potluck family recipes for this event.

Thanks, also, to Trinity families and friends for generously donating non-perishable food items to SHARE for the Thanksgiving Food Drive. SHARE serves as a food pantry for those in need right here in our community.

 

SHARE Food Drive

It’s not too late to give! Trinity’s food drive for SHARE will continue through Christmas so please donate non-perishable food items during the Christmas season, as well. Please bring your donations (Safeway/Giant gift cards included) to the Fellowship Building or leave your grocery bags in the narthex. Specifically, SHARE needs the following items:

Tuna, rice in 2 lb. bags, cooking oil, canned beans, peanut butter, pasta and sauce, diapers (especially sizes 4-6), baby wipes, baby shampoo, diaper rash cream, toilet paper, paper towels, laundry and dish soap.

 

DC Scholars/ Stanton Elementary School

This year, due to major construction at DC Scholars/Stanton, Trinity Volunteers help with the collection/distribution of needed items and help kids from the McLean community interact with kids at Stanton. On Science Day, held on Nov. 3, five Trinity members, plus Girl Scouts and other McLean children interacted with third – fifth graders at Stanton, teaching them aspects of first aid and health. Volunteers from Trinity and McLean collected and distributed over 100 jackets and winter coats and 270 Halloween costumes for Stanton families. These donations made a huge impact on the nearly 600 children now at Stanton. If you wish to help in a “kids helping other kids” activity on Dec. 19, please contact Suzanne Hamilton. Transportation to and from Stanton will be provided.
