Trinity members believe in relational mission through service in three core areas: education, homelessness and hunger. It’s our way to become positive agents of change in our community. In light of the coronavirus outbreak, some of our mission partners are asking for specific help as traditional volunteer opportunities have been suspended. We have provided those links below. We are also focused on specific, intentional prayers for our mission partners during this time.
Our partnership with Nations Ford Elementary School is more than a decade strong! It grew out of an effort to support teachers, students and their families. Trinity volunteers provide classroom aides, tutoring, field trip chaperones, and teacher appreciation treats. We also sponsor the NFES Book-a-palooza twice a year through Read Charlotte.
We are proud of the teachers and scholars at NFES as they continue to make great gains!
TPC partners with Urban Ministry Center through Room in the Inn by hosting a safe, warm place for our homeless neighbors to sleep. Volunteers also serve lunch monthly at UMC.
We also partner with Supportive Housing Communities through McCreesh Place, which helps people transition to stable housing.
During the coronavirus outbreak, we can still support these partnerships through vital online donations:
Trinity Presbyterian’s Friendship Garden provides fresh produce for Friendship Trays, which delivers hundreds of meals across the Charlotte area weekly.
Trinity has donated thousands of pounds of produce over the years! Church volunteers tend the garden, pick vegetables, and deliver produce to Friendship Trays. No gardening experience is necessary! Some of our church members also volunteer to deliver meals for Friendship Trays.
Friendship Trays also has critical donation needs, which we can support at this time.
