TRINITY'S OUTERWEAR FAIR - held annually in October

BLANKET-MAKING at Parmly
Do you have scrap fabric you would be willing to donate to Parmly? Bring fabric donations to Trinity. Look for the box in the office on the Lost & Found / For Our Members shelves.
Trinity collects CELL PHONES
for the Refuge, a local shelter for battered women. If you would like to recycle your old cell phones or adapters, they can be dropped off in the church office. The phones do not need to be operational. They are only used to dial 911, and may help women escape a dangerous situation.

SAVE YOUR SOUP+ LABELS to help our local schools:
The Chisago Lakes Area Schools could use your help and it won't cost you anything! Just dig through those cupboards and clip Box Tops, Campbell's Soup Labels, Land O'Lakes and Moola Milk Caps, Coke Rewards Points, and Tyson Project A+ Labels. There is a bin in the church office to collect all the labels. The area schools will process and submit the labels for either cash rewards or points to buy items for the schools.
