Those selected for 2015 include Homes of Hope, Ephrata Area Social Services, ELCA Domestic Disaster Relief, Veterans Affairs- Lebanon VA Hospital, Lower Susquehanna Synod, The Bridge, Lancaster County Council of Churches, Milagro House, Gettysburg Seminary Scholarship Fund, Luthercare Caring Fund, Seeding the Future (Camping Capital Campaign), and ELCA Malaria Campaign.

 

Holy Trinity was recently recognized by the Lower Susquehanna Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA) for donating over $50,000 to the ELCA World Hunger Fund over a 10 year period.

 

Clare House, a shelter in Lancaster for homeless women and their children, named Holy Trinity as the church recipient of its 2010 Helping Hand Award.

 

Social Ministry Committee

 

The Social Ministry Committee sponsors an ongoing collection of food items for the Ephrata Area Social Services (EASS) Food Bank, and each summer the congregation also donates over 70 boxes of food items to EASS. The congregation also purchases Back to School clothing and school supplies, Thanksgiving turkeys, and Christmas presents for children and families of need.
