The Trinity Outreach Commission is currently chaired by Timi Most. Please contact her for information about upcoming meetings and how you can get involved!
As needs arise Trinity Outreach provides grants towards disaster relief efforts both domestically and internationally. Primarily we give through Episcopal Relief and Development, a four star rated non-profit on charity navigator.
Home and Hope (Every Summer)
Each summer, Trinity Church spends 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. For more information please contact Jim Bramlett or Barbara Newton.
Ecumenical Hunger Program
Trinity partners with Ecumenical Hunger Program every year in at least a couple of different ways. One of those is providing resources to help families served by EHP to get their children ready for school. We provide the resources necessary for parents to go shopping for their kids' school supplies -- something that most of us view as a chore to be completed, but the EHP parents consider it such a gift to have the opportunity to shop for their children. We also partner with EHP at Chirstmas time through their Family Sharing Program by providing new gifts and gift cards for families in need, making sure that these families have a joyful Christmas to share with one another. For more information contact Timi Most.
My New Red Shoes
Trinity's Youth group partnered with My New Red Shoes in Fall of 2017. My New Red Shoes focuses on improving the educational experience and quality of life for children in need by providing them with a pair of brand new athletic shoes and the opportunity to shop for school clothing. To learn more visit: mynewredshoes.org and contact Patrick for more information.
Elmwood Correctional Facilities
in 2017 Trinity launched a jail ministries program working with CIC Ministries at Elmwood Correctional Facilities. On the third Sunday of the month our team does a prayer service for some of the women at Elmwood. If you are interested in joining our team please contact the Trinity office.
Easter Basket Build (Every Spring)
Just before Easter, Trinity holds an Easter Basket Build. 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.
Rebuilding Together (last done on April 28, 2018)
Trinity Church organizes volunteer opportunities and services days with the local chapter of Rebuilding Together. They provide critical repairs and renovations for low-income homeowners. Generally we participate in an annual Rebuilding Together day on the last Saturday in April. For more information please contact John Crevelt.

Redwood Family House
As part of our calling to serve those who struggling with housing issues we are partnering with Redwood Family House, a part of the work of LifeMoves (formerly InnVision Shelter Network,). Trinity has a long history of working with InnVision as part of our outreach efforts. We do occasional work days and backpack drives for their residents. For more information please contact Jim Bramlett.
