Trinity’s Food Pantry

a Social Ministry of Trinity Lutheran Church

 

We served 371 friends during the month of November

As the weather up north gets colder, we are seeing more first time visitors.

Thanks to all for the donations of clothing over the past few months!

We are doing well in the women’s clothing department, but need a few specific items for men.

JANUARY PANTRY NEEDS

  • Men’s jeans (smaller sizes)
  • Comfortable shoes

Please consider
volunteering at our
Pantry!

Do you believe in God’s presence every day? I do!
Remember Pastor Paul explaining how we won a food collection from a competition within the St. Petersburg Police Department?

The  challenge was conducted by civilians who work in the Emergency Communication Division of the Police Department.
The group representing our Pantry was the evening shift of 911 operators.

On Monday, November 19, the operators and some Trinity volunteers unloaded a trailer, van, and cars with an overwhelming amount of
goods. Most of these items are currently in the former Sew and Sew space and some is already in the clothing section in the pantry.

When asked why the Trinity Pantry was selected as the designated charity for this group, we discovered a few evening shift workers had a connection with Redeemer and Trinity. Courtney Nickerson and her sons, Grayson and Gabriel, are granddaughter and great  grandsons of Alan Nickerson, a former leader at both Redeemer and Trinity. Also Heather Barrucci, daughter of Russell and Louisa Worley, shared that her parents were married at Trinity in 1982. Four generations of church family connections were present at this charitable outreach.

God’s blessings, Lynne Tallon
