As millions of Americans come together to celebrate the MLK Holiday, Trinity United Methodist Church (TUMC) is celebrating their second “America’s Sunday Supper” pie social followed by a MLK Day of Service community project.
America’s Sunday Supper encourages communities to share a meal and conversation about topics that deeply affect our lives, and highlight the power each one of us has to make a difference. Please join them on Sunday, January 20th at TUMC for the 2nd Peace Through Pie Social hosted in partnership with many community groups and nonprofit organizations including Griffin School, Amigos de las Americas, Center for Inquiry Austin, AHB Community School, AHB Community School, and HPNA. You are welcome to bring your favorite pie story and sweet or savory pie to share.
Then, Monday’s Day of Service project on January 21st partners with Posada Esperanza, a full service transitional housing program for immigrant mothers and children escaping domestic and cultural violence. Posada’s goal is to create a nurturing environment for the children while their moms work to achieve self sufficiency. There are tasks for volunteers of all ages: light carpentry and “fix-it” projects, fresh coats of paint, and basic clean-up. Donation needs include disposable daily items — toilet paper, paper towels, cleaners, detergent, soap, shampoo, and toothpaste. Or purchase ESL books and facilitate permanent volunteer help (ESL tutors, job-training, nutrition-classes, etc.).
For more information and to volunteer to help out at the events, please contact: Amy Duncan, firstname.lastname@example.org, phone: 512.459.5835 or visit www.tumc.org.
