PROGRAMS
 
Loaves and Fishes Pantry
 
The Loaves and Fishes Pantry is a non-denominational, non-sectarian food bank that supplies food to those in need to an area roughly encompassing the Ridley and Interboro school districts in Delaware County, PA.
Their "wish list" includes the following:
  • 1 pound boxes of spaghetti
  • canned spam
  • canned tuna
  • personal deodorant
  • toilet paper

Please bring the items you wish to donate with you to the next meeting.

 
Blankets of Love
 
These are hand-made Bereavement Blankets donated to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. (CHOP)
 
Mickey Straube is coordinating the baby blankets.
 
CHOP requested that the blankets be in two sizes:
Preemies                24 x 24
Full term babies      36 x 36
 
Please use baby yarn and either a F or G needle. Trinity also will provide the yarn for those interested in the project.
 
The young lady who started this project is a student at Upper Darby High School and is working on her Gold Award Project in scouting.

Rosaries
 
If you are interested in making more rosaries for the military please contact a Trinity Division board member for the supplies
 
 
Hibernian Hunger Project
 

The Hibernian Hunger Project is a nationwide community service program that feeds thousands of needy people through a series of events that run throughout the year. The Project was conceived by Bob Gessler, Philadelphia County Board & AOH Division 87 President in 1999. In March 2000 the very first H.H.P. Cook-In was held by the Philadelphia Ancient Order of Hibernians (A.O.H.) and Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians (L.A.O.H.) in remembrance of the more than one million Irish people who died of starvation and related diseases during the Great Irish Famine.

 

In 2003 the program went “national,” and similar Hibernian efforts to feed the less fortunate took place across the country to coincide with the St. Patrick’s Day weekend.
