Trinity Aid Bank Update

By Christa Johnson |  February 28, 2013

On Sunday February 17 during Worship, Mary Johnston from our local Thrivent office was here to officially award Trinity the $5,000 Economic Bridge Grant. Since receiving the news in December that we had been awarded the Grant from the Thrivent Foundation, we have been participating in a complementary two-to-one Challenge program sponsored by the Foundation.

For every dollar raised by Trinity through March 31st,  the Foundation will provide an additional 50 cents—up to $5,000—in support of the Trinity Aid Bank. So far Trinity Members and Friends have raised over $1,400 which, equals to over $2,100!!! 

As I write this article, today alone the Trinity Aid Bank has fed 8 family units, provided some toiletries for one, given some guidance to another and has arranged housing assistance for a single mom and her son.  And it’s not even 1:00 in the afternoon!  May the assistance Trinity provides to those in need within our community continue to be a blessing and a bridge from despair to hope.
