Office Volunteers Needed:
Welcoming visitors who come to the office, answering the phone, help preparing mailings, and more. It is possible to create your own schedule of helping, including days and times. This position helps immensely in letting staff and clergy concentrate on their responsibilities through the day. The usual time periods are either 9a-12:30p or 12:30p-4:00p but any amount of time is appreciated, so if you have an hour or so free that is also a big help. Contact Robyn for more information.
Appalachian Regional Ministry (ARM)
As part of Trinity’s outreach to the community, the Appalachian Regional Ministry (ARM) was established. We learned that Graham County is one of the poorest counties in the state and there was an existing program for food distribution in Robbinsville.
Tom Goodrich is the chairman of this committee. We currently have several volunteers who go to Robbinsville on the second Wednesday of each month to distribute food from Manna Food Bank and to prepare a meal that serves up to three hundred people.
We work with a local parish Liberty Missionary Church and their pastor Michelle Shiplet. We have provided clothes and books for children in the past. The committee meets on a bi-monthly basis. We need volunteers in computer technology assistance. There is also a great need for home repairs in the community.
If you are interested in helping in this ministry, please contact Tom Goodrich at firstname.lastname@example.org.
