The week of January 15, the Trinity Foundation continued to support the local community by presenting Susan Kent, Director of Love Inc., with a contribution that will benefit the non-profit’s newest project, the C.R.O.S.S. building (Community Resource & Occupational Service Station). The C.R.O.S.S. building, located in Seaford, will house Code Purple Sussex County’s supportive services.
This past holiday season, the Trinity Foundation partnered with Love Inc. of Mid-Delmarva to help provide food to families through “Thanksgiving for All” and spread holiday cheer by donating gifts for “Christmas Families” in the Sussex County area.
“We’ve been proud to partner with Love Inc. on various other opportunities throughout the year, so when they came to us with the need for additional funds to get Code Purple up and running we jumped at the opportunity to make it happen,” said Amanda Lloyd, Trinity Foundation Director.
Code Purple Sussex County’s mission is to offer food and sanctuary to those with no shelter during the cold weather months. The C.R.O.S.S. location will provide services for vulnerable individuals who need a place to shower, clean their clothes, eat a warm meal, and prepare for their case plan. The Trinity Foundation’s $3,500 donation to Code Purple will assist with heating and electrical costs and kitchen equipment that would allow the program to offer soups and sandwiches to the homeless individuals that come in.
“Code Purple Sussex County – Empowered by Love Inc. was surprised and delighted to receive funds to purchase new appliances for the C.R.O.S.S. building where the homeless come for community dinner and connection to the Code Purple Sanctuaries that are open each night,” said Susan Kent, Director of Love Inc. “We are so thankful for this generous donation so we can purchase new appliances! How honoring it is to the volunteer team who works tirelessly to help our neighbors. All of Code Purple Team is very thankful for the support Trinity Foundation has provided to this vital ministry! It simply cannot be done without community support!”
