The group is also collecting deodorant, disposable razors, facial tissue, feminine products, soaps, shampoo, toothbrushes, and toothpaste, gently used shirts and used plastic shopping bags.

Make a Difference in the Lives of People around the World
For the past number of years, Trinity Parish has presented and supported a Mission Gift Fair which sold gifts, food, clothing and other articles provided by Fair Trade Organizations. These agencies work in dozens of countries to develop safe working conditions and pay fair wages to the artisans and farmers who produce the items, providing them an opportunity for sustainable work and a way to safely lift themselves and their families out of poverty. The participants are truly taught “how to fish, not just given a fish”. The money that was made from the sales at our fairs was given back to the organizations so that they could continue their programs. Even though we are not having a Mission Gift Fair this year, we urge you to continue to support this Parish Outreach project by shopping on the internet sites of the following:
