Dinner for Interfaith Works Women’s Center
Quarterly, Trinity’s Social Ministry Team organizes a dinner for Interfaith Works Women’s Center in Rockville.  On Sunday, August 2, we will be feeding approximately 30 women who reside at the Center. Given COVID guidelines, we will not be able to serve the food, but will simply drop off the meal at dinner time. 
A menu featuring Mediterranean grilled chicken has been planned. We need volunteers to provide vegetable pasta salad (recipe will be provided), iced tea, watermelon and brownies. Please sign up to help through this secure link:
