Trinity Center, 1647 Ravine Lane in Carpentersville, invites the community to join in a "Bahamas Recovery" drive from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Dec. 6, and 9 a.m. to 43 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7.

Do you have new or gently used health orthopedic items?


Foldable walkers, wheelchairs, crutches, canes, orthopedic supplies (walking boots, slings, ace wraps, etc.), along with tarps of any size, blankets, shovels (preferably flat with a long handle) and flashlights with working batteries are all in demand in the Bahamas.

The Trinity Center, a ministry of Barrington United Methodist Church, is collecting these items to assist in the Bahamas recovery effort.

Please consider donating your new or gently used health recovery items.

Also needed to make Personal Dignity Kits are: hand towels, wash cloths, toothbrushes, toothpaste, bar soaps, travel shampoos, 2.3 oz deodorants, combs, nail clippers, band aids, razors with guard, and gallon zip lock bags.

For details, contact or (847) 836-5540.
