Please Support Holy Trinity’s Women’s Shelter
Holy Trinity’s Women’s Shelter has completed its first week of operation! Holy Trinity provides staffing and support for the Holy Trinity Women’s Shelter. This is an amazing ministry that occurs Tuesday-Thursday evenings in which up to twelve homeless women sleep, eat, and relax in our parish hall.
Our hope this year is to increase our commitment to the shelter with volunteers helping cook, sorting clothing, and assisting with other necessary activities. If you are willing to volunteer, please call shelter-coordinator Michele deCoteau (347-844-1836) or email her (Mjdblessedalways@gmail.com).
If you are unable to be present but would like to support the shelter, we need hangers (for donated clothing), toiletries, gently used clothing, and new socks and new undergarments (drop off at the office).
