Partnering with other community organizations, we are able to give hundreds of families and individuals the supplies every single week.
Thursdays • 10:30 am-2:00 pm
The Sharing Table is a neighborhood initiative that grew to meet the needs of our neighbors facing financial insecurity. Each week, an average of 40 local families come to get what they need in a safe, welcoming, and relational environment. We make it a point that this ministry is all about sharing – neighbors helping neighbors. Those who need food and household items often have things to share as well; we are all supporting each other and making connections to spread joy and encouragement to our neighbors in need!
By networking with several area organizations and churches, Trinity has been welcoming refugees and asylum seekers from Afghanistan, Sudan, Syria, Ukraine, Central and South America and more as they make their new homes here in Birmingham. Evacuated amidst chaos, these individuals and families are coming here essentially with only the clothes on their backs, and we are grateful to be able to make this time of transition more comfortable for these families and individuals.
The Outreach Hub offers a large “Free Store,” where our new neighbors can shop for clothing, household items, furniture, and food. We create a space to form connections and relationships as we welcome these families into our community.
Many of us have a lot to give, and many have needs unmet. The Neighborhood Network grew out of The Sharing Table and helps meet the specific, urgent needs of our neighbors. When we discover a need – like furniture, baby clothes or equipment, heaters, kitchen items, etc. – we send an email to the ever-growing network, and you can share whatever you have to offer. By connecting as a community, we can ensure that no one in our neighborhood feels alone, and no one struggles in silence. We can do great things by working together!

We can’t do this without you!
Want To Help?
The Sharing Table is filled by donations from individuals, churches, scout troops, sports teams and more, allowing us to provide fresh food, books, household items, clothing, baby equipment, and furniture, working to meet needs as best we can. We are currently collecting items that cannot be purchased with food stamps (SNAP).
Have something to share? Drop off donations at Trinity West Homewood outside the Fellowship Hall anytime (914 Oak Grove Rd), or the Trinity Oxmoor Campus Welcome Center during office hours.
Volunteers needed on Thursdays, any time between 9:30am – 2:30pm.
Items can be dropped off anytime at Trinity West on the outdoor collection shelves across from the gym, or during office hours on the Outreach Cart in the Oxmoor campus Welcome Center.

Join the Neighborhood Network, so that when great needs arise we can easily connect and share what we have to offer. This could be baby clothes, furniture, microwaves, bedding, food – you name it. By connecting as a community, we can ensure that no one in our neighborhood feels alone, and no one struggles in silence. We can do great things by working together!
Amazon Wish List
We need help restocking the shelves for the families and individuals that visit our Outreach Hub on the West Homewood campus. There are so many different items needed, so one way to help communicate the current need was to create an Amazon Wish List that allows you to make a quick purchase and have the items sent directly to the Hub. Check it out and make a donation today!
