Family Promise f/n/a Interfaith Hospitality Network of Athens is a non-profit organization that provides shelter, food and emergency services to families with children facing the crisis of homelessness. The Family Promise program has continued to serve the Athens community throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Trinity Lutheran is a supporting congregation for this program. Jo-Ann Thorne is hosting a Family Promise Support Sunday on October 10th. She will be collecting these items for Family Promise from now until October 10th. See the list below on items that are needed most. Please bring in these items and put them in the Gathering Room. On October 10th there will be a collection basket in the Gathering Room if you would like to donate money to Family Promise. If you have any questions, please contact Jo-Ann Thorne 706-202-2740. You can also visit their website at the link below to find out more about this organization.


Below is the list of items that Interfaith Hospitality Network of Athens is asking Trinity members to donate (you can take this list with you when you shop):

o All Purpose Cleaner

o Sponges
