There is an envelope in the church hall to collect these.

 

Donating to Ukraine Crisis:
If you wish to donate through Trinity United, just mark your donation as “Ukraine” and bring it to Sunday service, or drop it off at the church office. On your computer, go to Ukraine Crisis /The United Church of CanadaYou can also put a cash donation into the dropbox in the thrift store.  
We have collected $2150.50 year-to-date!!! between the Church and the Thrift Store, and have remitted this amount to M&S (Mission & Service) specifically for the Ukraine Crisis.

The church will continue to collect donations for Ukraine. The Thrift Store is also still collecting cash donations in their wooden box at the till in the store.


Outreach:     
The new refugees arrived June 22! They are a family of 8 coming from Kuala Lumpur when they escaped from Myanmar. They have a small 2 bedroom house secured through the Creston Refugee Committee and leased for one year. The Committee will require almost $9K for the remainder of the year for rent.

Bagged lunches will be served until the end of September.

Trinity Treasures Assistant Manager
I would like to welcome Betty Martin as Assistant Manager of Trinity Treasures! Betty has been a long-term volunteer and with her hiring it provides me with the flexibility of taking as much leave as necessary to be with my husband, while knowing that the store is in the good hands of Betty and the extraordinary volunteer team! – Karen Shannon.

Trinity Treasures Thrift Store Wins Award!
Trinity Treasures has received a “SILVER” Best Used Goods / Thrift Store award! The award comes from the Creston Valley Advance Reader’s Choice poll. A big THANK YOU to Karen and her Volunteers for all their hard work and dedication! Stop in at the store to see the framed award handing on the wall.

Estate Donated to the Thrift Store:
The Thrift Store has received a donation of an ENTIRE estate! Karen got on the phone and managed to get a group of firefighters – yes FIREFIGHTERS!! to help pick up the items at the estate, including a sailboat! Karen’s volunteers also worked hard packing up all the items, and Carole’s son-in-law chipped in with his flatdeck and he and his friend made two trips picking up and unloading here at the church. Needless to say, the thrift store is full! By the way, the sailboat is in the garden courtyard here at the church if you’re interested!!
