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.

Thank You, Trinity Admin Staff (Trish Shurtz)
