It’s that time again. Kids will be returning to school sooner than you know it. So we’re asking our Trinity family and neighbors in Astoria and Long Island City to consider donating school supplies and backpacks to our Blessing of the Backpack drive.

We’re collecting the items starting now and in a few weeks we’ll hand them out to kids in our community who need it.

We also have a GoFundMe! You can click HERE to donate there. Any amount is profoundly appreciated, and will go miles in helping our kids focus on learning, instead of whether they will have pencils, rulers, crayons, paper, folders, or backpacks they need before they even hit the desk.

Please contact Luisana Santana ( for more information.
