We hope you will participate in this Lenten project by writing a short note of encouragement to someone who has experienced sexual assault or domestic violence. Your note will be placed in a cosmetic pouch along with travel size toiletries.
Here are some guidelines for writing a note:
No need to address it to anyone, but if you like, you can write “Dear Friend”
2-3 sentences is all that is needed
You may sign your note with your first name
You'll find small squares of paper with the Trinity Church Logo at the Front Desk or use a small index card to write your note
Here are some ideas for toiletry donations: lip balm, moisturizer, vaseline, dental floss, hand wipes, tissue packets – basically any "nice" (new and unused) items for hygiene or cosmetic purposes. Please note that the clients are both female and male.
(Please note: All toiletries must be travel size to fit in the pouches!)
There will be a box for toiletry donations and a box for notes of encouragement at the front desk until March 16th.
Any questions: contact Suzanne Dicker: 609-712-1191, firstname.lastname@example.org
Trinity's Sewing Group is leading a Lenten Outreach Project for Womanspace. The group has started sewing beautiful cosmetic pouches to be ready by the middle of March.
The pouches will be blessed during the 10am service on 18 March before being given to Womanspace for distribution.
Each year, Womanspace partners with a church to provide a small gift for each client who comes in for counseling during a designated week in April. Trinity will be the partner this year and our goal is to provide a gift for 70-85 people.
