“Everybody can be great…because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of gratitude. A soul generated by love.”
– Martin Luther King Jr.
This important ministry supplies our local community with everything from food vouchers, YRT tickets, or household cleaning supplies, to simply offering support for those who find themselves in need.
This initiative is a partnership of six Aurora churches, and is located here at the Trinity Aurora Rectory.

The Help Cupboard
The Help Cupboard is a self-help 24/7 supply of critical food needs.
Aurora has 2,735 households with family incomes below the poverty line, and those homes include 23% of our town’s children. We are addressing a need not covered by other community support ministries and it works because of the generosity of people like you.
Next time you visit Trinity check out the update flyer on the red food donation cart in the narthex and bring along some nutritious food to leave behind.
With a direction for users to “take what you need for today” we are delighted to share that this emergency food supply program is working well.
This ministry is hugely important to our community and we would be delighted for you to be part of it!
Drop in Monday through Saturday from 9:30am – 11:30am for a great source of gently used women’s, men’s, and children’s clothing, shoes and boots. This ministry is located in the lower level of the church, and all proceeds are directed towards the ministry of Welcoming Arms.
Due to COVID-19, the ministry is cancelled until further notice.
Each year a portion of the income received annually on Trinity Aurora’s Endowment Fund assets (the capital portion is held forever) is used to support causes in the nature of ministry and mission, not ordinarily within the purview of the operating funds of Trinity Church. This is done at the local, national and global level.
Groups such as Welcoming Arms, Doctors Without Borders, Pikangikum Water Project, Gran Aurora, The ABLE Network and many others have received funding in the past.
If you would like to know more, or request an application for funding, please contact Scott Allan, Fund Chair for an application form. Submissions are due September 8, 2020.
