May at Trinity

During May we are collecting canned vegetables and fruit, tuna fish, soups, peanut butter and jelly, snacks, cereal, crackers, rice, condiments, flour, sugar and other non-perishable food items to be distributed to our neighbors in need. This food will be given to the Open Pantry. Please bring these items when you come to worship and leave them in the totes at the back of the sanctuary and join us in helping those who are food insecure in our community.
