Annual Report

outreaching hands

 

Mission is the foundation of all that we do at Trinity. We have a very active Outreach Committee that organizes programs year round. Our commitment is to help people and families in need, especially children, locally, nationally and internationally.

Outreach/Mission

The following programs are supported primarily through in-kind donations. Additional funds come from our annual budget and all of our fundraising revenue is now being dedicated to outreach.

  • Back to School Backpacks – Trinity puts together backpacks for needy children filled with back to school supplies. We distribute these to primary and intermediate school children in Canton, to Covenant to Care for distribution by the Department of Children and Families, and our two adopted children.

  • “Sock-It-To-Me” September - we collect socks for Canton schools to distribute to needy children.

  • Winter Hat/Glove/Mitten Tree - we collect warm clothing for distribution through the Canton Food Bank and Cherry Brook School in Canton, the Torrington Shelter, My Sister’s Place and the Chrysalis Center in Hartford.

  • Christmas Wish Tree - Trinity provides Christmas presents and Christmas dinner for two Canton families.

  • Christmas and Lenten Goody Bags - we prepare these for the VNA to distribute to Canton shut-ins.

  • Souper Bowl Sunday - Trinity gathers donations for the Hartford Loaves & Fishes soup kitchen. We also collect grocery store certificates, phone cards and toiletries for the Susan B. Anthony House, a shelter in Torrington for abused and battered women.

  • Dinners for My Sister’s Place - On the second Sunday of every month Trinity parishioners prepare dinner for this battered women’s shelter in Hartford.

  • Easter/Spring Baskets  - we make baskets for needy children in Hartford and the Farmington Valley.

  • Food Bank Sunday and Aid-a-Pet- on the first Sunday of each month we donate items to the Canton Food Bank, and pet food for pets of people suffering with AIDS.

  • Birthday/Holiday Gifts and Letters - we send these to our adopted daughter, Maria Crow Eagle, a 14-year old Native American girl from South Dakota. Maria is our second adopted daughter.

  • Operation Shoebox  - Trinity provided treats and personal items for our troops in the Middle East.

  • The Heifer Project - We participated in this ministry through the donation of enough money to purchase a water buffalo, heifer, sheep, goat, and starter chicks.
