May 2017


Members of Trinity United Church of Christ in Palmyra, Pennsylvania, have been volunteering at and donating to Caitlin’s Smiles since 2009. Their first interaction with us was when they made “Bags of Smiles” for a mission project. Since then, they’ve not only made monetary contributions, but they’ve also donated crayons, Play-Doh®, and all sorts of arts & crafts supplies. Although all of their donations have been greatly appreciated, the one donation that really stands out over the years is the number of journals they have assembled. To make these journals, the group first purchases single-subject notebooks. Then, at their church, they put together the journals by gluing pictures to the front. When they’ve finished, they deliver them to the Caitlin’s Smiles office. Once at our office, the journals go into our “Bags of Smiles.” (Each bag includes one journal.)

After the church’s most recent delivery of 160 journals, we decided to add up how many it has assembled for us over the years — this group has created a whopping 3,307 journals since 2010!

Thank you, Trinity United Church of Christ, for all your hard work and dedication. We, and the children we serve, are truly honored that you have chosen Caitlin’s Smiles to benefit from the fruits of your labor for so many years.
