Advent Gifts

This year the Church will again collect gifts throughout the Advent Season for Trinity Food Pantry in Lancaster. If each person brings only one item each Sunday, we will be able to provide many necessary items to families in our area who are in need of assistance.  If you miss a Sunday, just bring it in the next week.  The following are suggested donations for each Sunday during Advent:

First Sunday of Advent (12/1)  PAPER PRODUCTS  (Examples:  paper towels, napkins, toilet paper, paper plates, waxed paper, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, tissues)

Second Sunday of Advent (12/8)  CANNED GOODS, ETC.  (Examples:  canned fruits or vegetables, pasta, spaghetti sauce, tuna fish, soup, condiments)

Third Sunday of Advent (12/15)  HYGIENE ITEMS (Examples:  soap, toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, shampoo, feminine products)

Fourth Sunday of Advent (12/22)  BABY ITEMS (Examples:  diapers, baby food, baby wipes, baby powder, Desitin)
