Christmas Outreach Opportunities

Trinity provides big and small ways to reach out to others during the Christmas season. Please consider participating in one or more activities during Advent.

Red Wagon

Bring can goods and non-perishable items and place them in the wagon under the table by the courtyard windows in the narthex. Our local food pantries are in need of food to help families that are experiencing hard times.

Warming Tree

Decorate the tree with pairs of white socks for homeless adults who are guests at PADS and warm hats and mittens for needy children.

MANNA

Order gift cards that can be given to people in need within our community.

Heifer

Donate to Heifer. (See article in Tidings for the details.)

W.I.N.G.S.

(Women in Need Growing Stronger)

A list of needed items is on the table in the narthex (diaper, paper goods cleaning supplies, etc). Donated items can be placed in the marked box under the table.

PADS

Give the gift of time. Volunteers are especially needed 2nd and 3rd shift on Friday nights. The sign up book is in the narthex each Sunday.

Marcy Newberry Association

Thanks to everyone who selected a child’s name. Gifts are due back at church by noon on Sunday, Dec. 9th.

Also in December,

Heifer International

The Outreach Team will have Heifer International gift cards available for purchase. These photo cards are a great gift for anyone, but especially for those who are “hard to buy for”. Gifts start in price from $20 for a flock of chicks. This ensures there is a gift price that’s right for friends, family and others.

Heifer’s approach to providing global assistance to struggling countries has been characterized by long-term development, rather than short-term relief. After immediate needs for food, shelter, fresh water, clothing and other necessities have been met, Heifer works within communities to empower disaster survivors with the economic means – such as livestock, training and other resources – to rebuild their families, their neighborhoods and their hope for sustainable futures.

Every family and community that receives assistance promises to repay their living loan by donating one or more of their animal’s offspring to another family in need. This practice of “Passing on the Gift” ensures project sustainability, develops community and enhances self-esteem by allowing project partners to become donors.

This is Heifer’s sustainable approach to ending hunger and poverty – one family, one animal at a time. It’s not temporary relief. It’s not a handout. It’s securing a future with generations of people who have hope, health and dignity.

If you’d like to buy a Heifer gift card, call Debbie Watson.
