Trinity College Kids’ Care Packages

Our college students are hard at work and our generous congregation continues to support our kids, young and old.  Let’s show a little Trinity love by providing a gift card for our college kids to a favorite restaurant.  If you prefer to donate money, we will use it to purchase treats.  Please be sure to indicate that your check or cash is for “Trinity’s College Kids’ Care Packages”.  You can place your donation in the shoebox immediately outside the sanctuary beginning Sunday, October 22nd.  Collections will continue through Sunday, November 19th.

Gift card suggestions include:  Starbucks, Chipotle, Buffalo Wild Wings, Steak ‘N Shake, Subway, Sol Taco, Pi, Kayaks, Kaldi’s, CBW (Crazy Bowls & Wraps), and Target.

Parents of College Students:  If you have a college student, please contact Marie Kelly, 221-5881 and provide her with the following information:

  • College address
  • Two (2) favorite national chain restaurants and one (1) local establishment in your child’s college town
  • Their favorite candy or dessert
