Trinity Lutheran Church's "Climb Aboard the Food Train" to benefit Westbrook Food Pantry

Trinity Lutheran Church's "Climb Aboard the Food Train" to benefit Westbrook Food Pantry

Trinity Lutheran Church (612 Main Stree) is sponsoring a city-wide food drive to benefit the Westbrook Food Pantry.

Many local businesses and congregations have been collecting money and food donations since mid-March in preparation for this event.  Local service organizations and the Westbrook Clergy Association are assisting in the collection of food.  On Friday May 3 and Saturday May 4, a cargo train will collect the food and money from the businesses, and on Sunday, May 5, the train will collect from the churches.  All donations will be brought to the food pantry at the Westbrook Community Center.

Trinity is anticipating a great outpouring of generosity in the community.   FMI contact Trinity at 854-5653 or office@trinitywestbrook.com
