Trinity’s Food Pantry

a Social Ministry of Trinity Lutheran Church

February brought 354 friends to our pantry.

Give Up for Lent?

During each week of the season of Lent, we’re asking you to pay attention to your consumption of a particular commodity, give thanks for your ability to do so, and make a corresponding donation to our Food Pantry and Cold Night Shelter ministries.

As always, the Trinity family delivered when the pantry coffers were depleted. Gracious giving was displayed at our unannounced pantry collection on Sunday, February 17th! We thank you for your ongoing
support.

Several avenues are being explored to enable our pantry to become financially self-sufficient. The application for 501(c)(3) status is a critical priority at this time. I am searching for someone who has experience with this application process. Please contact Lynne Tallon, Lynnesaim@verizon.net as soon as possible. This status would enable the Pantry to seek a greater variety of funding sources.

Get ready to join our Lenten “give up” something Sunday collections, which will occur during the Lenten season.
Details are listed in the chart below. All items will be used to provide for basic needs of those within our community.

God continues to bless this outreach ministry with committed volunteers. Yet we always have room for others to join us on Tuesdays or Fridays from 10:00 AM-Noon;. If these times are not best for you, we could also use help shopping on Monday mornings. See Lynne for more details.

God be with you, Lynne Tallon
