February Hand’s Day 365: Responding to Those Who Were Devastated after a Super Typhoon (Category 5 Hurricane) Hit the Philippines in December
Trinity’s own Bill and Page Mallory started a factory in the Philippines and developed it as a BAM (Business as Mission) to provide jobs, work with community outreach, teach people about Jesus and make a profit for the local leaders. Their daughter, Shep Gallagher, runs the US office of the company and is coordinating the collection of much needed items for their workers and families who lost so much after being hit by the super typhoon a couple of months ago. Everyone lost power and water for a period of time and there are still many without either.
Trinity will be working with Shep to collect the following items which can be dropped off at the church (lobby, gathering area, narthex, and Wesley Hall). OR you can purchase items from this Amazon Wishlist and items will ship directly to their warehouse. If you would like to ship other items outside of what is on the wish list: Philippine Typhoon Relief, 145 Industrial Drive, Thomson, GA 30824. Please have all items to the church or shipped any time BEFORE Thursday, February 24th. The container carrying the donated items to the Philippians will be shipped a few days later.
For items dropped off at the church: please mark the bags or boxes to identify the contents and include sizes for clothes to help those who are assembling the shipping container:
Clothes (They need summer, fall and spring clothes – NO winter clothes)
Mostly Adult XS, S, M
Some Adult L and XL
All Children sizes (from baby to teen)
Sheets, Blankets, and pillows
School supplies (nothing, like crayons, that will melt in extreme heat)
Rechargeable flashlight and rechargeable electric fan
Tents – for totally damaged houses
Books (baby books all the way to teen books)
Contact Rev. Julia Crim or Shep Gallagher with any questions.

For the canned goods does the can have to have a tab or can it be one that needs a can opener?
Hi Candy! It can be any can, it does NOT need to have a tab. Thank you!
