“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
So many of us are starting to see the light at the end of the pandemic, and as we take small steps in moving back into our comfort zones, we need to remember that many of us, living here in our own community, don’t have a comfort zone on critical things like food to return to.
Our own Help Cupboard is the only 24/7 source of emergency food supplies in Aurora, and it is an important part of the safety net for families who don’t have enough food on their tables. Through the pandemic, the problem has been increasing. The Help Cupboard continues to have regular use with untold numbers of people taking only what they need, knowing there will be more food in the cupboard tomorrow.
This is an incredibly important ministry and we all can make a difference. The men’s group thanks those who already are supporting the Help Cupboard. If you have never donated, that’s ok, but please consider starting now.
Due to COVID-19, although the Clothes Closet will remain closed for the month of January, donations are still being accepted in the bin beside the rectory.
Stay tuned for reopening news!
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.
