Today the Episcopal Community Foundation for Middle and North Georgia (ECF) announces its first Small Acts of Charity grant of 2019 to Trinity Episcopal Church (Columbus, GA).
Trinity Episcopal Church will receive a grant of $4,000 to create a new room for coats and toiletries in addition to the two rooms they already utilize for men and women’s clothing. By creating this additional space, the people served by the clothing closet will have more consistent and safe access to the clothing and resources that the parishioners of Trinity have provided, and the parish will be able to ensure they have the proper equipment to handle heavy coats as cold weather is imminent.
“We are thrilled to start off our grantmaking year with a meaningful grant to the Trinity clothes closet,” said Lindsey Hardegree, Executive Director for ECF. “This effort is a clear example of a parish responding directly to a community need in a way that serves those in need while utilizing the resources that the parishioners bring to the parish. ECF is proud to support a refinement of the great work already being done in Columbus.”
