Each year our Community Outreach Ministry team organizes a July Giving Tree event which collects supplies and monetary
donations to support local organizations in our community. This year, we are asking folks to collect items throughout the month
of July and bring them to our parking lot event on Sunday, July 26, from 10:30 am – Noon.
How can I help?
Purchase items from the needs listed below (click here for a full list). We have partnered with these wonderful groups and they have given us the items most needed by their organizations at this time. Please purchase as many of these items as you wish. On July 26, you will bring these items to the Trinity Church parking lot where they will be collected.
Make a monetary donation. We appreciate any monetary donations that you can make toward this event. Click here to visit our online giving page. Place the amount you wish to donate on the “Giving Tree in July” line. You may also send a check to the church; just write “Giving Tree in July” on the memo line.
