Addressing Food Insecurity

Responding to Hate
Trinity partners with Shaare Torah Jewish Community, Prince of Peace Lutheran Church, Interfaith Families Project of DC (IFFP), and the Islamic Society of the Washington Area (ISWA) in the annual Montgomery County Interfaith 5K. As a symbol of interfaith respect, this race is held each Labor Day. Join us for a day of family fun and fitness, and celebrate our diverse Montgomery County community of faiths. All proceeds are donated to local beneficiaries which serve those in need in our community.

Partners in this work have included Lutheran World Relief, Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service, Community Family Life Services, Greater DC Diaper Bank, and Lutheran Social Services
