Together we can give families in need something to be thankful for.

*Please note: Each family that receives a basket is referred by one of 40 different local agencies such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Catholic Charities, Meridian Healthcare, etc.  Trinity does not participate in the referral process and cannot provide Thanksgiving baskets to walk-ins. If you are in need of a Thanksgiving basket, please contact the agency you are receiving services from.
