A note about Trinity's Neighbors in Need during this time of global pandemic:
We thought you might enjoy seeing the Covid-19 version of Neighbors in Need………
The bins are full of food donations: including but not limited to canned soups, “cup-o-noodles”, protein bars, apples and oranges, hard boiled eggs, cheese sticks, pre-packaged cookies and candies, bottled water and juice, bread, rolls or bagels, and tuna fish.
Volunteers are at the doorway to hand out the grocery bags. These volunteers also offer socks and blankets.
Our volunteer team pre-bags these items into the white grocery bags that you see on the floor. Our Neighbors (typically 50 to 55) line up outside, always 6 feet apart, receive their groceries, then immediately leave the property.
Neighbors in Need continues to be an ecumenical/community ministry. Thank you to members and friends of Trinity as well as Gloria Dei Lutheran, St Michael/St Patrick Episcopal, Edmonds Unitarian Universalist Congregation, Lynnwood Rotary, Northwest Center and American Heroes Café for your participation and donations.
It certainly isn’t the neighborhood relationship that we have enjoyed for the last 11 years, but it is the best we can do for now. This is how we stand together in prayer to love each other as we are commanded to do. Our Neighbors teach us through their consistent gratitude.
God be with each of us,
