"It is a great feeling to contribute on a project that helped so many people in need of vital dental work, which is a key contributor to overall health and quality of life." Ryan Potter
HOUSTON, TX, October 18, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Alsco Inc., the premier linen and uniform rental services company, recently donated funds to Trinity East United Methodist Church in Houston, Texas, to provide dental care to those in need.
The Trinity East United Methodist Church came together with three other churches to raise money to open the Texas Mission of Mercy dental clinic in Emancipation Park, where dentists volunteered to provide free dental care to those in need. Approximately 750 patients were provided with no-charge dental care, which would have cost a total of $527,381.
Alsco Houston Industrial had the pleasure of presenting Trinity East United Methodist Church with a donation to help make the Texas Mission of Mercy dental clinic possible as well as providing employee time to help with the event. "It is a great feeling to contribute on a project that helped so many people in need of vital dental work, which is a key contributor to overall health and quality of life," says Ryan Potter, General Manager of the Houston Industrial Texas Branch. "The event was right in our backyard, in the community where our laundry plant has operated since 1984, and many of our employees reside."
About Trinity East United Methodist Church
Trinity East United Methodist Church is an offspring of Trinity United Methodist Church, which is the oldest Black Methodist Church in Houston, Texas. The origin of Trinity was from the first Methodist church that was organized in 1841 for white members. However, the original sixty-eight members included thirty-two blacks, both free and slaves. The church was located above a store on Capital Avenue between Milam and Louisiana in fourth ward.
Trinity East is currently involved in many community Outreach programs: (1) SEARCH, an Interfaith organization that provides tools and opportunities for the homeless with hope of changing their lives and enhancing their dignity and self-worth; (2) Christian Alliance; and (3) Thursday Night Out, for members and the homeless in the church community. This is a worship service praising God through song and the Word. It ends with a nutritious meal and prayer of hope; (4) missions of the United Methodist Women and Men, Women's Ministries, and Gleaners; (5) a very strong Sunday school, weekly Bible studies and Vacation Bible School; and (6) works with generation 1, a community outreach program and several other community programs.
