REACH YOUTH MISSION TRIP
JULY 22 THROUGH JULY 28TH
PEARLAND, TEXAS

On July 22 through July 28, eleven of our youth and three adults will travel to Pearland to join with the REACH group to be a part of the rebuilding after the Harvey disaster. During their time there they will be primarily focused on replacing dry wall and flooring to help get families back in their homes. The group will need the following tools:

• Masks • Safety glasses • Cordless drills • Keyhole saws • Putty knives • Utility knives
• Mud pans • T-Squares • Sanding blocks/sanders • Tape measures • Staple guns.

If you can help provide any of the items or lend any of the items to our youth group, please let us know. There will be a sign-up sheet in Eaton Hall and a plastic tub to place the items in. Please put your name on the tools you are lending. Trinity will also accept a donation to help purchase needed items. If donating, make the check to Trinity with REACH Mission Trip on the memo line. We thank you for your support!
