Food Pantry News

Trinity donated more than 100 pounds of food so far this year...let's keep it going.

The Lombard/Villa Park Food Pantry is in need of the following food items that are not available currently at the food bank: peanut butter, jelly, pasta sauce, canned vegetables, syrup and pancake mix. They suggest you select one or two items and donate in quantity if possible as this makes it easier for them to pack the boxes of shelf-stable foods for the drive through distribution. You can drop off donations to Lombard/Villa Park Food Pantry, 155 South Main Street, Lombard IL 60148 on M-W-F mornings 9-11:30am or Wednesday evenings 5-6:45pm 

They also welcome financial donations that can be sent or delivered to the address above. You can also donate online to Northern Illinois Food Bank at and put "Agency Credit 1369A Lombard/Villa Park Food Pantry" in the comments and it will go as credit on their food bank account.

Also, for any families that are in need of food you can receive food on M-W-F mornings 9-11:45 am,  also Wednesdays 5-7 pm AND the 3rd Saturday of the month from 9-11:45 am.

Carillon Singing Again

Thanks to Mike Ticaric for setting up a work around to get our music into the air again! We have received a lot of positive feedback from our neighbors including this lovely message below:

I was so blessed this morning by your church bells! I knew every hymn and was able to sit in my yard and worship along with the birds in chorus. What a great way to start Mothers Day .... I could hear my mother singing along from heaven.
