Harvest Home was celebrated at Trinity on Saturday, October 13th and Sunday, October 14th.  We had two tables full of items for the Schuylkill Women in Crisis Center.  They were extremely grateful for Trinity’s generosity.  Thanks to Yvonne Specht for setting up the beautiful fall display for our Harvest Home collection.

This celebration provides an opportunity for us to give to others in thanks for all that we have been given. We will be setting up a Harvest Home display and collecting items to be given to the Schuylkill Women in Crisis Center (SWiC) in Pottsville.  Schuylkill Women in Crisis is a private, non-profit organization founded in 1983 to provide services to victims of domestic violence and sexual violence in Schuylkill County.  In addition to assisting victims, this agency is working to confront the societal issues that contribute to this problem. SWiC is motivated by the belief that all individuals are entitled to live free of the fear and pain caused by emotional and physical abuse. 

The following items had been identified as items used at the Shelter and frequently needing replacement. 

  • Bed Linens (twin and full)

  • Pillows

  • Paper Towels

  • Toilet Paper

  • Gift cards (Giant, Walmart, Staples)

  • Cleaning supplies (floors, dishes, bathrooms)

  • Laundry Detergent

  • Garbage bags, especially 55 gal black trash bags
