Care for the Earth by Recycling Styrofoam

Holy Trinity is partnering with First Presbyterian Church to recycle Styrofoam.  Drop off your clean Styrofoam containers in the blue wrapped trailer parked on the First Presbyterian upper parking deck just across the street from Holy Trinity’s sanctuary front door. Styrofoam is taken to the community densifier at the Tiny House warehouse on Gate City Blvd. Hope in Action means taking care of the earth, God’s gift to us all! Coordinated by Holy Trinity's Outreach Ministry.
