On Wednesday, September 4th, Trinity joined the Teacher Meet and Greet at Bryant Montessori to hand out backpacks and school supplies! All told, we supported 100 Bryant and Jason Lee Middle School students with backpacks and school supplies.
With our church building under construction this year, we knew we would not be able to serve as many students as usual. Yet, while we planned to only support half as many students, the generosity of our donors went unchanged. In the end, we provided each student receiving more supplies than ever before.
Trinity certainly could not have accomplished this on our own. We are so thankful to our partners at https://ipctacoma.org and AllianceOne Receivables who collected supplies on our behalf, as well as Thrivent Financial, supporting with funding for backpacks. And of course, we are grateful to the many Trinity members who donated backpacks, funding for school supplies, or their time to support this work. Additionally, we’d like to give a big THANK YOU to the many hands who came along to sort supplies, arrange backpacks, hand out cookies, and offer a smiling face to the kids in our neighborhood as they prepare to go back to school. None of this would have been possible without you!
