What we do for others
5th Quarter – this program happens after Conrad Weiser Friday night home football games. It provides a safe place for kids to hang out, enjoy free food and some great music. We need adult chaperones to help in the kitchen and supervise these events. We have had up to 500 youth attend.
Conrad Weiser Food Pantry – Trinity serves as the host site for the Conrad Weiser Food Pantry, which distributes once a month, usually the 4th Thursday of the month. Presently, the food pantry is serving close to 200 families and individuals. Our members are asked to contribute to the pantry by placing food in the grocery cart in the lobby. Numerous members assist with the monthly distribution. We also financially sponsor Easter baskets, Christmas baskets, and picnic baskets in the summer.
City Light Ministries – We have agreed to provide soup once a month for the clients at City Lights on the 4th Wednesday of each month. If you would be willing to make a pot of soup, please sign up on the kiosk so that we can be sure we have an adequate amount of soup for at least 50 to 60 clients. It must be dropped off at the church by 9:00am on the day we are serving. Thanks for your help!
Shelter Meals – Trinity members provide a meal for Opportunity House in Reading approximately every other month. We will ask for donations of menus items, such as chili or barbecue, rolls, fresh fruit and dessert. We will also ask for volunteers to help serve the meal. You can participate every time or sign-up at your convenience.
Family Promise – This program is an outreach to homeless families in Berks County. Trinity serves as a host site, having families stay in the facility four different weeks during the year. Our members make dinners, help pack lunches, make breakfasts, serve as mentors and stay overnight as hosts. While being hosted, the families meet with a social worker to help them find jobs and housing. The program is working extremely well in helping families get back on their feet.
