Next week, my annual pie party and donation drive will be taking place! I am looking forward to seeing some familiar faces, along with some new ones.
This effort supports the Trinity Center in Walnut Creek, which is a homeless shelter helping to assist those in need around our area. I believe the reason Walntu Creek doesn’t have a large homeless problem is because of the good work done by the Trinity Center to offer them viable solutions.
I used to do a just a coat drive for the one warm coat, but the last three years I have made it a pumpkin pie pick-up party with a donation drive supporting the Trinity Center. I supply the pie, the party and people bring donations for Trinity, and it is a wonderful pre-holiday time to connect with neighbors and clients. Any pies that don’t get picked up, also get donated. Since I distribute this flyer in Parkmead, I usually hire students or moms to pass them out and pay $25. This year a neighbor Cynthia helped and asked me to donate the money to Trinity – I will be buying a Chevron gas card.
This year, they are asking specifically for some clothing items in both men’s and women’s sizes. See the image below for details. Items can be used, but clean with no holes or stains, but certain items like underwear should be new ;-).
As for the pies, reserve one today and make sure to bring a donation for the Trinity Center. If you can’t swing by to pick it up yourself, message me and we’ll arrange something. Try to come by and get it yourself, because the party I’m hosting will be a blast!
