Trinity Episcopal Church in Roslyn welcomes volunteers to join its “Blessing Bags” program, assembling and providing bags of food and other items to give to those in need, focusing on Hempstead.

The monthly program is held on the last Saturday of each month (a joint effort of the Salem AME Church) and volunteers fill bags with water, sandwiches, fruit, packages snacks and more and then they head over to the Hempstead train station and distribute them.

“We have been assembling and giving out these bags of food for the less fortunate for about a year and have helped hundreds of people,” said Rev. George Sherrill. “We have such an enthusiastic and caring community here that this is a great fit for a project to help those in need in our backyard and all are welcome to join us.”

If you’d like to give a monetary donation to help fund this program or join the volunteers, please email [email protected].

Trinity Episcopal Church is at 1579 Northern Blvd. in Roslyn and holds Sunday church services at 10 a.m. It is a historic church, designed by architect Stanford White and with Tiffany stained-glass windows. Its parish is friendly and welcoming to all.
