Holy Trinity collects 400 sweaters for families in need

NT Staff

CHERRY — Holy Trinity Parish in Cherry completed its first “Sweater, Glove, Scarf Drive,” collecting 400 sweaters for distribution to various local entities that benefit the underprivileged and elderly. 

“We were proud and excited about last’s year effort and were equally happy with the strong support shown by our parishioners and others that made donations this year,” said the Rev. Patrick Fixsen. “There will be many needy and elderly people in the area who will be able to keep warmer as the winter sets in.”

Recipients include Public Action to Deliver Shelter and The Closet resale shop in Princeton.

“The main purpose of the Holy Trinity Cherry Stewardship team is to support the underprivileged, the under-employed, and elderly in the area,” Fixsen said. “Such efforts not only help the needy but also demonstrate to members of our parish the Christ-like activities that we should be striving to do in some way every day.”
