Support Holy Trinity with gift cards for things you already buy ~ Our Vestry has approved an exciting new way for our parishioners to help keep our house of worship in excellent working order, allowing other funds to remain available for important programs such as Outreach and Music. The program is “Scrip” and it is just another way for parishioners to pay for everyday purchases using gift cards in place of cash, checks, and credit cards. You purchase gift cards at face value, and our coordinator (Marilyn Kinzler) orders those cards from Great Lakes Scrip Center at a reduced price. The difference is an instant rebate for Holy Trinity. It’s really that simple! When you use scrip gift cards at your favorite retailers, you’re fundraising while you shop. Great Lakes Scrip Center offers more than 700 of the country’s biggest retailers, including grocery, department stores, gas stations, restaurants, hotels, home improvement, and more. Just by using Scrip to pay for your normal weekly purchases, you can easily raise $500 or more per year. It’s time to put our shopping dollars to work for Holy T!  Look for our “Scrip” table at Coffee Connections to sign up.

CROP HUNGER WALK, Sunday, September 23, 12:30pm beginning and ending at the Uptown Parks. This is a community led fundraising event to end hunger.
