Making a Difference for the Future
At Holy Trinity we know that our work extends far beyond our walls. Each year we work together to serve our neighbors near and far. Two of our ongoing programs are Midnight Run and Meal Packing. Each year we add various other programs as special outreach initiatives.
In 2018 we donated over $4000 worth of chickens, goats and medical supplies through ELCA Good Gifts, In 2019 we are off to a great start with our Dress for Success program.
See events page for information on how you can participate in our next event.
Please prayerfully consider how you might join in our efforts to do “God’s Work with our Hands”
Our last run was a breakfast run in January 2019. We distributed close to 100 pairs of new waterproof boots and socks for the homeless. We also provided hot coffee and egg sandwiches to our friends living on the streets. In 2017 we also provided over 100 pairs of new boots for the homeless of the city on New York. Please help us exceed that goal for our next run.
In over 1,000 relief missions per year, Midnight Run volunteers from churches, synagogues, schools and other civic groups distribute food, clothing, blankets and personal care items to the homeless poor on the streets of New York City. These late-night or early-morning relief efforts create a forum for trust, sharing, understanding and affection. That human exchange, rather than the exchange of goods, is the essence of the Midnight Run mission.

We continue to help feed the hungry of New York by putting together meals for the various food pantries in our area.
Some of you have heard of a very special organization called Outreach which provides nutritional meals for those who are less fortunate than most. Our volunteers form assembly lines to package and box complete meals for distribution to local food pantries. In Fall of 2018 we packaged over 17,000 meals with the help of over 50 volunteers. In 2016 we organized a community meal packing and packed over 50,000 meals. Thanks to the Plattdeutsch Restaurant for letting us use their dining hall.
