Community Outreach 

Trinity United Church of Christ gives generously to programs in our community that serve others. Below are our current partners whom we support through our time, talent and funding.  

Lenten Food Challenge 2022

Since 2011, Trinity has been partnering with Good Samaritan Food Pantry. Once again Trinity UCC congregants have taken on the Lenten Challenge - to donate 40 items (one for each day of Lent)  per family to the Good Samaritan Food panty.

Here is a photo of the goods we collected this year to be delivered to Good Sam!

Bayside High School 

One of our partners in the community is Bayside High School.  Bayside High School is an Educational Alternative school that serves students in ninth through twelfth grades by providing opportunities to achieve graduation requirements in a supportive and personalized environment. Built with Pennies for Pinellas sales tax monies, the school is Pinellas County's first long-term educational alternative school which serves students identified as habitually truant, overage for their grade level and off-track for graduation. Our Community Outreach team recently selected Bayside to work with in providing needed items such as the graduation banner pictured to the left.  Graduate Devoni Grant is pictured with Mark Simon, RTI Academics and Staff Developer.  We look forward to working with Bayside in the next school year to provide more items for their students.  

Good Samaritan Food Pantry 

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 serves 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 have kept it going by continually donating to this very 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. 

Balanced Healthcare Nursing Home

Barbara Lee, Balanced Healthcare and Alan Towne

We have established an on going ministry with a local nursing home, Balanced Healthcare (formerly Jacaranda Manor).  We send greeting cards every quarter to the residents.   We  have made care packages filled with toiletries and other goodies. So many times, people living in nursing home situations are forgotten. We have seen the joy in their eyes when we come to visit and encourage anyone in our community to reach out to a nursing home to volunteer. You will be happy you did! Jacaranda's caring activity director, Barbara, has made working with the nursing home so easy and fun. Many thanks to the wonderfully committed staff at Balanced Healthcare and for the members of our congregation who contribute items and cards!

The address is 4250 66th St N, St. Petersburg, FL 33709.
