The Backpack Ministry

Summer vacation is almost here and Trinity’s Mission and Outreach Back Pack project is celebrating its first successful year. The project provided 25 students from Douglass Park Elementary School with food for the weekends during the school year. Nutritional menus were planned and delivered to Trinity each month to be packed for individual students to place in inconspicuous pack backs, through their guidance counselors, once they were delivered to the schools.   This program continues throughout the summer through the Food Bank and in cooperation with certain participating community summer programs.

We were also able to provide space for Broad Street Methodist to join us in packing for 50 John Tyler Elementary students supported by Broad Street this year. It was a great opportunity for Trinitarians to work together and to work with Broad Street in order to allow John Tyler to be served.

We had a large number of folks to participate each month in setting up, packing and delivering our boxes to the schools and we want to thank each of you who participated. The schools were most appreciative and the students were well fed on the weekends when working parents were often away from home, leaving students to fend for themselves.

Mission and Outreach will continue the program in the fall and we hope you will consider participating.
