Your donations of food are more important than ever! Guilford County has a poverty rate of 16.7% and we believe this is one way the church can make a huge impact. We are currently concentrating on items that are ready to eat or can be prepped via microwave, as we want to make sure we are offering food items for all types of families. Items include: microwavable rice bags, healthy snacks, healthy cereals, microwavable oatmeal, microwavable macaroni and cheese, pop-top cans of fruit, Chef Boyardee pop-top meals, ready-to-eat tuna kits, Campbells microwavable soup bowls, breakfast bars, etc. Donations are accepted at the church office Monday through Friday from 9AM – 2PM.
Greensboro Urban Ministry is open and serving the homeless and low-income neighbors of Guilford County while maintaining strict protocols to protect guests, volunteers, and staff from Covid-19 and other illnesses. They’re providing overnight shelter, meals, and groceries for families and a variety of emergency services while taking proactive measures to implement appropriate responses. The health and safety of guests, volunteers, staff, and visitors is their utmost priority, and they are making modifications to their programs to minimize gatherings and reduce face-to-face interactions. They are in desperate need of volunteers to help prepare and serve meals.

In working with Joann’s Fabric, Trinity Church would like to contribute to the growing need for masks. This company is already in place to assess and prioritize the needs of our community. Mary Grace Thomas and family, is leading the coordination efforts for this project. Working with families/individuals of all ages and skill levels, their main contribution will be prayer, providing fabric, sterilizing fabric, bagging fabric and supplies if available and needed, providing a pickup and drop off location, and providing a reference point for problem-solving as needs arise. Email Mary Grace at for more information.
