Amazon Smile

Hello — If you had been using the Amazon Smile program to donate to Holy Trinity, you may have received a communication regarding providing an alternate charity for last year’s accumulated donations due to a lack of Trinity being registered with Amazon. We looked into this and determined that you should, indeed, provide an alternate charity for your accumulated donations. You can reply to this email if you have questions. Thank You, Trinity Admin Staff (Trish Shurtz)
