Volunteers sought for annual Christmas in April projects
The Prince George’s County Christmas in April program involves volunteers who work together to help make repairs to local homes. The materials and any supplies which are used for this special project are donated or brought by this program. And all the repairs, materials and work is done free with no cost at all to the homeowner. The Trinity Episcopal Church is participating in this project this month and is asking neighbors, friends and family members to volunteer to help make some improvements to a local Prince George’s County residence. You are asked to call the parish office, 301-627-2636, to help with this project which will take place in this county on Saturday, April 30.
This church also helps with Martha’s Table, a program where people help by making sandwiches for the homeless shelter in Washington, D.C. Preparation for this event will start 11:45 a.m. Sunday, April 24. Trinity Episcopal Church is located at 14515 Church St., Upper Marlboro, where the Rev. Martha Bonwitt is the rector.
