Trinity is a solid contributor to feeding our community. This fall, we’ll try to beat last year’s record—and we need your help. By Layton Getsinger

As you have seen written and spoken about frequently, Iredell Christian Ministries is constantly in need of food to support the overwhelming need in our community by those who would otherwise go hungry.

While we collect food each month that is taken to ICM, we have, in recent years, used the beginning of fall to mount a major food drive.  On September 13th we kicked off the 3rd Annual “Can Do” canned food drive.  This is a combined effort by the Trinity Outreach Committee and Trinity Youth Group.  The food drive will end on November 1st.

Our parish, through your generous contributions, collected 1,920 pounds of canned food and supplies for ICM last year, which to date stands as the largest single donation to the ministries by a non-corporate group.

The youth group will conduct another food donation scavenger hunt following church on a Sunday to be announced in October.  This particular event usually produces the largest chunk of the donated food that we receive.

In order for us to beat last year’s record we need everyone to bring canned and dried food, paper products and cleaning supplies with you each Sunday and place in the space provided in the narthex.  You can be assured that those in need of this food stand in grateful appreciation for all that we at Trinity do to help them in their time of need.
