News & Announcements
Homeless in Ozaukee County
Some members of Trinity have been helping an organization called Family Promise for 3 years. Nine churches open their doors to the homeless up to 5 weeks a year. Those churches provide dinner, a place to stay overnight, and breakfast for 1 to 14 people. Trinity is currently committed to one period from 4pm until 7am each of the 5 weeks at St. John Lutheran Church, Port Washington Road.
Just what do our members do? First and foremost volunteer their time. They welcome our guests, provide a home-cooked dinner, chat and visit with them, and 2 members stay the night in case of an emergency. I would be remiss if I did not say "thank you" again to all our volunteers who have provided for many people over the past 3 years.
Family Promise of Ozaukee County does the hard work scheduling the churches to provide shelter, evaluating our guests' needs, providing guidance, training, and transportation, and finally helping them find affordable housing.
Trinity's coordinators would welcome you as a volunteer. Please call Donna Kramer or Rosa Cyrier to help provide for the homeless. We desperately need one or two couples and/or one or two men to stay at St. John overnight. The week of Oct. 14 will be our next opportunity to serve in this ministry.
Currently Family Promise has some needs: Paper towels (multi-size sheets), cleaning supplies for kitchen and bath, new/unused bed blankets. The blankets are given to each guest entering the emergency shelter. There is a box in the Gathering Room downstairs labeled Family Promise. You may deposit items there for disbursement.
Your generous gifts of school supplies and personal care items has resulted in
providing 124 students with a new backpack filled with school supplies and 69
personal care kits for people who have lost everything from a natural disaster or
Since 2015, when we started tracking our kits, your generosity has touched lives
in Haiti, Georgia (the country, not the state), Burkina Faso, Nicaragua, Mali,
Angola, Honduras, Iraq, Serbia, Tanzania and the Ukraine.
Along with our kits and quilts, the Endowment Committee will be sending a gift of
$1,000 to Lutheran World Relief to cover the costs of shipping to countries in need. Locally, we
take our quilts and kits to a box car, which then joins the train to the East Coast
where the items will be packed for shipping.
