New Business:

Lincoln Grant Scholar House: The refrigerator Trinity purchased has been installed and LGSH is very grateful. The school supplies collected in August have been delivered and Betty Mitchell has begun teaching sewing classes to several residents.

Little Free Library- Greg reported that Chris said the library could possibly be ready and displayed at the Red Door Rally.

Children’s Home of Northern Kentucky- Greg told the commission that Joe Obrochta will deliver the Christmas in July items collected.

Giving Tree- Joe O will refresh the tags on the tree this Sunday.

Emergency Shelter – September 15th is the next opportunity to serve dinner. Robb told the members he would contact Joe O to have him reach out and see if the date was available to serve dinner. Marsha said that Kim Webb is so grateful for the donations and the showers and laundry and they are bragging on Trinity. Due to the excessive heat, the shelter opened as a heat shelter over the summer.
