Each summer our Community Outreach team organizes a Christmas in July Giving Tree event to benefit local organizations. This year we are looking for a variety of $25 gift cards to benefit Trinity Tutors, Pinks Hands of Hope, and the Men’s Shelter. Take an ornament from the tree in the Gathering Space or select from the list below. All items should be dropped off to the church by Monday, July 31. Be sure to include either the ornament or the name of the beneficiary organization. Thank you for your support of this wonderful cause.
These dedicated volunteers give their time each week to tutor elementary school children in the Harrisburg School District. Throughout the year, the volunteers also provide the children with various school supplies and books.

Christian Churches United Winter Men’s Shelter
On cold winter nights, everyone needs a warm place to sleep. CCU, in partnership with local churches, opens two winter walk-in shelters to increase our community’s capacity to provide overnight shelter to those who need it. These shelters typically are open each evening from December 1 through March 31. Trinity has been a long-time supporter of the men’s shelter, sending both volunteers and financial assistance.
Needs: $25 gift cards to Burger King or Amazon. The Burger King gift cards will be used for prizes during Bingo games at the men’s shelter. The Amazon gift cards will be used for supplies, including beds and mattresses.
