From November through March, Trinity hosts monthly “Gives Back” events where the children create crafts for people in nursing homes and rehabilitation centers in the area.
Each event has a different type of project for the kids to work on and is followed by a book being read aloud that encapsulates the theme of the month. The children also go caroling at several local retirement communities to bring holiday cheer to the residents.
Following are the dates and projects for the remaining Gives Back events in the 2017-18 school year:
