Synod-Wide “Day of Feeding” Events

Outreach events have been planned for a synod-wide “Day of Feeding” that includes several different opportunities to participate in hunger related mission and service. The events will take place on Saturday, June 2, 2018 to coincide with the Synod Assembly, but will be available on a first-come, first serve basis. Therefore, an early commitment and sign-up (using links below) are important.

A hands-on food packing event will be held on site at Messiah College in partnership with Kids Against Hunger and Orphan Grain Train. This will take place from 7:30am-4:30pm using 153 volunteers every 2 hour shift. A clean-up shift is also available from 4:00pm-5:30pm.  Please sign up by clicking here.

The Central PA Food Bank in Harrisburg will open their doors from 9:00am-12noon for 20 volunteers within the Lower Susquehanna Synod for a group project. The project will depend on the current needs of the warehouse, but may include packing ElderShare or assorted project boxes. Volunteers as young as 12 years old are allowed with a parent.  Please sign up by clicking here.

In Elizabethtown, a work day will be in progress at the Wittel Farm for their “Growing Project”. This is a wonderful family project as volunteers age 6 and above are welcome. The workday is from 9:00am-12noon and may include planting, weeding and/or harvesting vegetables to help feed the hungry in Lancaster County, and throughout South-Central Pennsylvania.  Please sign up by clicking here. 

Keep an eye on Trinity’s Outreach bulletin board for any additional service opportunities that may become available. REMEMBER: Sign-up on-line to participate in a project for June 2nd. A sheet has been posted on Trinity’s board so families may share with others where they are serving. Invite a Trinity friend to join you! Direct any questions to Elayne Olson.
Our “Day of Feeding” strives to eradicate hunger one relationship at a time.
