Partner with the Office of Community Service and Civic Engagement

Host events or sign up for a community garden plot at Trinfo.Café
Trinfo.Café is a community space that bridges Trinity College and Hartford. Patrons can access computers, printing, scanning, faxing, events, programs, and more at Trinfo. Community partners can get in touch about hosting events or signing up for a community garden plot.
Each year, Trinity provides us with full Thanksgiving meals for approximately 70 of our neediest families. This partnership is important for several reasons. It shows our community that Trinity College is a continued support to the families that reside in our city. The importance of service to others is one of the lessons we teach our students at ELAMS. Trinity College provides a model, not just through the Thanksgiving drive, but in all the initiatives that support the students and families of Hartford. Most importantly, without this donation, many of our families would not have the resources to have a Thanksgiving dinner, which is a holiday our students and families look forward to each year.
