Missions at Trinity
Mission of the Month
On August 24th, we will be hosting Backpacks and Haircuts day in the MPR for underprivileged kids in Poquoson. Do you remember going to school with your brand-new haircut and supplies? It was always an exciting time!
We need volunteers on August 24th from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. to help set-up the MPR, help kids with their school supply list, and clean-up afterward. Call Elaine Vandervoort to volunteer (757)868-9525

Poquoson Parish Thrift Shop Food Pantry
Located on Wythe Creek Road, we help keep the shelves of the Food Pantry stocked with non-perishable food items and monetary donations go toward fresh milk and eggs for the food pantry. The collection box is located in the Commons area. Monetary donations can be designated with Thrift Shop Food Pantry
Free Little Food Pantry at Messick Point
There is a bin in the Commons to donate items to the Little Free Food Pantry, and someone will take them to stock the box. You can also take items there directly, the box is located at the intersection of Messick Road and Ridge Rd.
Please remember that for some children, the only meals they have are at school!
We also take personal care items such as deodorant, toothpaste, etc. for the LFFP. This outdoor donation box allows neighbors to give and/or receive food with no questions asked. Monetary donations are welcome too - make a note on your check memo line or offering envelope - Free Little Food Pantry
