Usborne Book Fair

Little Blessings Preschool will be hosting an Usborne Boor Fair November 8-12. Please plan to stop by the classroom located in the Gathering Area near the entrance of the church. Mrs. Laukhuf is generously donating a portion of her sales in books to Little Blessings for our teacher’s classrooms.

Angel Tree

Since 2012, Holy Trinity and Little Blessings Preschool have partnered with Frederick Douglass Elementary in Leesburg to provide clothing and holiday gifts to children in need. This year our 2017 Angel Tree, located in the church’s Gathering Area, holds 200 ornaments for gifts that the families of 100 children have indicated they need or would enjoy – toys and games as well as basic clothing items such as warm jackets, pajamas, socks, or gloves. Everyone with a generous and loving Christmas spirit is welcome to take one or more of these ornaments!
After you have chosen your ornament(s):
  1. Sign-out the ornament #(s) you have chosen and your contact information.
  2. Fulfill the gift wish(es).
  3. Wrap the gift(s) with the ornament(s) firmly attached and include a gift receipt in the package, particularly for clothing that may need a size exchange.
  4. Return the gift(s) back to the Angel Tree by Sunday, December 10th.
 The gifts will be sorted and delivered to Frederick Douglass Elementary on Monday, December 11th for distribution before the Christmas break.
With thanks and gratitude!
