BERWYN, PA — Join us for a special MLK Day of Service event at Trinity Presbyterian Church in Berwyn, PA! We’re hosting a Food Drive and a Book Drive to honor the legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. and give back to our community.

Trinity’s Caring Cupboard provides a week’s worth of groceries once a month to approximately 35 families who live in the T/E community. Trinity does receive some food items through the Chester County Food Bank. However, many items are provided by Trinity through donations. We currently need the following: jelly, mayonnaise, crackers, coffee, tea, salad/cooking oil, toothpaste, bath soap, laundry detergent and toilet paper. We accept all canned goods that have not expired as well as monetary donations. We hope you will consider donating to help those who experience food insecurity in our own backyard.

Book Smiles is a non-profit organization based in Pennsauken, New Jersey. We are looking for new or gently used books for students in grades K-12. They are in search of: Children’s picture books, Young adult novels, and Graphic novels. Unfortunately we are not accepting textbooks or encyclopedias. For more information, please visit their website: booksmiles.org

Bring non-perishable food items and gently used books to help those in need. Your donations will make a difference in the lives of local families and promote literacy in our area. Together, let’s make MLK Day a day of service and compassion. Your generosity will have a lasting impact!

Please tell your neighbors and friends about these service projects and thanks in advance for participating!
