Thank you for your generous response

to the Food Collection this month.  

The team delivered 412.5 pounds to the Food Pantry.

In response to the cut backs in federally funded food programs, the Outreach ministry at Holy Trinity will collect non-perishable food items on the 2nd Sunday each month.

 

Since the storage space at the pantry is limited,  they asked that we only buy items on this list:

(Items marked with a * are in special demand.)

 

Canned Tomatoes--all types, pasta sauces*

Canned green beans

Canned corn

Canned peas

*Canned fruit

Canned soup

Pkg Raman soup

Mac & cheese Crackers

*Tuna

*Peanut butter

Boxed/canned meals (chili, stew, ravioli)

*Pasta and spaghetti

*Cereal

 

Other items needed:

*Bars of soup

*Toilet paper

*Individually wrapped toothbrushes

*Toothpaste

*Dish soap

 

In a conversation yesterday, someone told me when she grocery shops, she tithes with her shopping list.

 If she purchases $50 worth of items for herself, she adds $5 of items for the food pantry collection.

 

I though it sounded like a good idea and an easy way to include our outreach into our everyday routine.

 

Thank you for your faithful support of this community outreach!

 

Outreach is again planning a clothing drive to benefit Family Promise. Bags of clothing will be collected in May with final drop off day May 21st. 

Each bag collected will be redeemed for $5 vouchers for Family Promise guests to shop for needed items.  So, as you spring clean, set aside your discarded clothing to help Family Promise!

 

(If you are spring cleaning for the clothing drive, we will also accept Christmas gift bags, wrapping paper and bows for Jubilee Christmas.  Those can be left in the office.)

 

You can help Lafayette Transitional Housing!

LTHC Homeless Services is a non-profit organization which began in 1989 to develop housing, offer supportive services, and other opportunities to foster self-sufficiency for the homeless, particularly families with children, in our community. LTHC operates the following programs: the Homeless Services Program ~ Coordinated Entry, Permanent Supportive Housing Programs, Rapid Re-Housing, and Supportive Services for Veteran Families. The goal of each program is to help individuals and families who are experiencing homeless learn the needed skills to maintain housing.

 

Are you re-organizing your living space, remodeling or upgrading your home?  Think of LTHC if you are replacing household goods, furniture, appliances, etc with new ones! Although they can't often help with transportation, they do have garage storage space at their facility to be able to hang onto these items until a client gets housing and has a place to put it.
