Daily Bread Food Pantry

For more information, or to volunteer to help out, please call (508) 473-8464 or send an email to us.

Trinity Church was one of the six churches who joined together to found the Daily Bread Food Pantry in 1991. The Pantry is run totally by volunteers and is funded by donations of food and money from local churches, businesses, civic groups and individuals.

Food can be left in baskets at the back of the Church each Sunday, or it can be taken directly to the Pantry on Monday evenings between 6:00 and 8:00 PM. Trinity has a rotating list of volunteers who delive the food every Monday. Volunteers also help pack the food for clients or supervise on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 6:00 to 7:30 PM.

The Pantry is always looking for new people to help. Here is a list of what is needed:

  1. Volunteers to help either Tuesday or Thursday morning from 8:30 to 10:00 stocking shelves with food for the clients to pick up that night. This does involve lifting.
  2. Volunteers to work at the Pantry either Tuesday or Thursday evening from 6:00 to 7:30 filling bags for the clients. This is on a rotating schedule and is never more than once a month.
  3. Volunteers to be on a substitute driver list. You would be someone to call in a pinch when we know there is food to pick up at the Food Bank in Shrewsbury. The Pantry has a new cargo van. This would be on a week day morning and involves lifting. They always send two people.
  4. Volunteers that could go with the driver to help with the loading and unloading of food at the Food Bank in Shrewsbury. This again would be on a weekday morning and involves lifting.
  5. Volunteers to be on a substitute driver list to help with deliveries to Homebound clients in Milford. We have four drivers for this, but subs are periodically needed. This is only once a month and generally involves delivering to 4 or 5 people. It is always the second Thursday of the month.

If any of these jobs would work out, or even if you just want to try them please call Pat Ward or the Parish Office.

The Daily Bread Food Pantry is located at 21 Exchange Street, almost across the street from Trinity's back door.

The United Thank Offering

For more information, or to volunteer to help out, please call (508) 473-8464 or send an email to us.

The annual ingathering of the United Thank Offering is held each spring at a breakfast between the 8:00 and 10:00 services. Some of the many uses that our generous offerings do are building churches, feeding hungry people, giving clothing to people in need. We also help to provide care for physically, mentally and emotionally challenged people.

The power of the "Blue Box" is unlimited. It can be used at home, in the car, or at workout. Using it can be a spiritual time for the whole family, as we pray and reflect about the important work of this program. So many people benefit from the "Power of the Blue Box".

The National UTO home page has more information.

The UTO Prayer

UTO

Source of all creation, all love, and all true joy: Accept, we pray, these outward signs of our profound and continuing thankfulness for all of life. Bless those who will benefit from these gifts through the outreach of the United Thank Offering, and keep each of us thankful for all the blessings of joy and challenge that come our way; through Him who is the greatest gift and blessing of all, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
