Upcoming Outreach Projects
Welcome Baskets for Redwood Family House
Trinity Outreach would like to welcome new families when they move into Redwood Family House with a Welcome Basket of supplies. Providing a few essential items (laundry detergent, dish soap, broom, mop, cleaning products, etc.) will send each new family a warm welcome as they transition to their new home. Our goal is to prepare and deliver 25 baskets in January for this ongoing need. If you would like to participate in this project by shopping for the basket items, or preparing and delivering the baskets, please contact Jim Bramlett. A list of items needed will be provided along with reimbursement by Outreach.
Catherine's Center is a Restorative Jusitice Program of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul of San Mateo in alliance with the Sisters of Mercy West Midwest Community. Trinity is partnering with Catherine's Center to provide community along with occasioanl food drives and fundraisers. If you are interested in supporting this ministry, contact The Rev. Elizabeth Riley.
Home and Hope
Each summer, Trinity Church spends one to two weeks hosting a Home and Hope shelter. The congregation provides volunteers to support this event and the mission of Home and Hope: to provide a safe haven for homeless families while helping them to regain long term self sufficiency and raise community consciousness on the issue of homelessness by actively engaging volunteers. This year we will be hosting Home and Hope from June 19 through July 3. Sign-Ups for volunteers will begin in May.

Trinity Church organizes volunteer opprotunities and services days with the local chapter of Rebuilding Together. They provide critical repairs and renovations for low-income homeowners. This year's Rebuilding Together Project will take place on Saturday, April 30. More details about the project will be available closer to the date.

Easter Basket Build
Just before Easter, Trinity holds an Easter Basket Build (usually on the Saturday before Palm Sunday). We build about 300 baskets for children in shelters up and down the Peninsula. It's a great activity for families with younger kids, who really enjoy putting the baskets together. The dates for the next build will be posted here closer to Easter. This year's Easter Basket Build will be happening on Saturday, March 19, from 9:00 to 11:00 am in Trinity Hall.
