Trinity's students and teachers invited the community to a free International Celebration Day, where there showcased the things that they learned studying other countries and cultures. There were educational displays, activities, games, and delicious treats from all over the world. To SHINE, students and visitors colored encouragement cards for international missionaries and gathered school supplies for Liberian School Children through Liberian Children's Mission, operated by long-time Trinity friend, missionary Joe Boway.
