Our Outreach Mission
With Millennium Development Goals in mind, Trinity’s outreach efforts touch many corners of the world. Our donation selections, made at year’s end, will increase by 3% for 2016 and will support these Maine based organizations:
Hopeful Links – helps minor asylum-seekers in our country alone, with medical fees and legal assistance necessary for them to gain asylum. The children are identified through the public school system, and Immigrant Legal Advocacy Project attorneys provide their services pro bono.
Refugee & Immigration Services of Catholic Charities of Maine – provides direct support and legal assistance to refugees in Maine. Bus passes for transport to job interviews, appropriate clothing for living and work, rent assistance, and legal aid are just a partial list of services provided.
Locally, we continue our involvement with the many worthy endeavors of the York Community Service Association including the Food Pantry. Our hugely successful summer backpack program continues and will help increase the number of local children ready for school with a backpack filled with much needed supplies.
Please consider making a donation to these worthy causes by leaving a check in the offering plate or basket in the narthex, noting “Outreach” on the memo line.
