Mission 1: Bring Food!! 


 As part of our Mission 1 effort in the fall of 2011 we began collecting can goods and other non perishable items that can go to feed the hungry in our county.  Our goal was to  collect 111 items by the end of the month and we collected over 300. The items went  to our sister church, Good Samaritan in Pinellas Park. "Good Sam" has had a food pantry for  45 years and serve approximately 2800 people a year. They are open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday from 9:00 am to noon and accept monetary donations as well as goods.

Helping Good Sam in 2011 started a great tradition! We want to keep going with this worthwhile project so please keep bringing in those canned goods, peanut butter and paper products. Good Sam is very appreciative!!

 The items can be placed by our worship table in the Chapel. For more information about the Good Samaritan Food Pantry, click here.

 

Family Promise

In 2015, we became part of the Family Promise program.  As a support church, we have agreed to support a host church four weeks a year in helping shelter and feed a homeless family.  Our host church is Palm Lake Christian Church.

Family Promise provides temporary housing to Families with children who have lost their homes. They are a nonprofit, non-religious charity who primarily works with faith-based institutions to accomplish their goals.

Family Promise helps families without homes regain their independence. The goal is to help provide the families with a secure, safe, temporary environment while the parents work with case managers, counselors, and service agencies to return the family to a stable home and a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. Trinity UCC is proud to be part of the effort to help the homeless in Pinellas County. For more info on the Family Promise Program, click here
