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.
