We need your help!
Our food banks and homeless ministries are struggling to keep up with the needs of those who are hungry.The food pantry we serve, Daily Bread Community Food Pantry, is seeing 25-30 new families a week. A significant number of ministries that feed the homeless in Philadelphia have had to shut their doors because of COVID-19 protocols.
To respond to the needs, we will be hosting a Food Drive at Trinity every Sunday this summer from 1-3pm.
- See below for full details on the program or click here to download a PDF on the program.
- Help us provide needed items to Daily Bread Community Food Pantry
- Help us make Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches for the homeless in Philadelphia
All of these items can be safely dropped off at Trinity on Sundays between 1pm and 3pm. We ask that you stay in your car, and allow the volunteer to collect your donations from your back seat or trunk/hatch area.
Jesus calls us to love our neighbor, and I thank all the people of Trinity and TCNSK for helping us respond to the need of our neighbors.
Please let me know if you have any questions. If you have found yourself in need due to the pandemic, please let me know so we can help.
Blessings, Pastor Skyle
Trinity’s Summer Food Drive Program Details

Sundays from 1-3pm
You stay in your car at drop-off; volunteers will take your donations from your trunk/back seat to the transport vehicle
PB&J Sandwiches for the Homeless – Welcome Bread, a partnership with Welcome Church in Philadelphia
Because so many soup kitchens have closed in Philadelphia, we are partnering with Welcome Church to make as many PB&J sandwiches as we can throughout the summer.
1. Make your sandwiches on white bread. A long loaf will make 9 sandwiches. Consider buying 2 loaves.
2. Make the kind of sandwiches your parent used to yell at you about. Load them up so we can fill bellies. Peanut butter on both sides of bread, jelly in the middle. (Creamy PB, not crunchy.)
3. Place your sandwich in a Ziploc bag that seals
4. Drop-off sandwiches at Trinity on Sundays (1-3pm) - Lou Farrell from Welcome Church will come to pick up our sandwiches at 3pm on Sundays to take to Philadelphia.
Even if you can only make 1 sandwich, it makes all the difference to one hungry person!
