Lots collected for Farm Workers’ Ministry
Trinity members worked throughout the month of July to collect new and gently used clothing to be donated to the Episcopal Farmworkers’ Ministry. The ministry, which is based in eastern North Carolina, supports migrant workers who work on a large sweet potato farm.
By the end of the month, the church had collected a good portion to donate, and the items were blessed at our annual Summer Salad Luncheon. The lunch, which is used as a fundraiser for various outreach ministries, gathered about $230 to add to the gifts of clothing.
All of the donations were then transported to St. Mark’s Episcopal in Huntersville, which graciously agreed to deliver goods that we and others collected to the ministry.
Trinity’s outreach team is especially grateful to Bill, Re, and Jim Johnston, who donated five full boxes of new t-shirts from their company, Re-Cover.
Don’t forget this fall we will jump back in with our annual Can-Do Food Drive, which will kick off after Rally Day. Bring your canned food items to church each Sunday, and let’s try to beat last year’s collection! —Rowdy Armistead
