WARNING: There is a new estate sale organization in Minneapolis that is going by the name of Trust Estate Sales. It is not us! They are not affiliated with us in any way, and it is not a nonprofit putting the money back into the community. If you are looking for the most current TRUST Estate Sale, go to estatesales.net and look for TRUST, Inc./Trusty Salers. Because estate sales information might change and because we don’t want to list addresses on our web site, estatesales.net will have the most up to date information.  And pictures, too!


A Message From Executive Director, Nancy Biele

Dear TRUST Friends:

In June of 2000, I began my journey with TRUST. Since that time, we have added churches, created initiatives formed by the congregations and maintained our core services. I am only the seventh Executive Director that TRUST has had in its 48-year history. Prior to me, the longest serving Executive Director was at TRUST for six years. I have been here 18 years, and I will be retiring in June. (Continues here…)

Now, about TRUST.

Depending on when you are reading this:

  • 91 meals are being delivered;
  • 4 sidewalks are being shoveled;
  • two visits are being conducted by the Parish Nurse or her volunteers;
  • eight elderly women are being transported to the grocery store;
  • thirty retirees are attending a Life Enrichment lifelong learning event;
  • twenty-five people are going on a day tour;
  • fifteen people are attending a grief support group;
  • volunteers from seven TRUST churches are providing 1:1 care to those with memory loss attending respite care at the Gathering;
  • one of 18 annual estate sales is being held;
  • TRUST Builders are creating affordable housing through Urban Homeworks; and
  • TRUST Youth are providing service projects for the community.


In 1970, clergy and lay leaders from eight congregations convened to ask what their churches could do better together than they could alone. That was the beginning years of service and celebration. Now there are 19 member congregations from nine denominations. Adding the other congregations that join to provide at least one of the services, there are 50 churches gathered with TRUST to do “good works” in the community.

What you see of TRUST depends on your interests and needs. TRUST’s programs have evolved from assessing needs in the community, seeing changing demographics in churches and following great ideas generated from one or more churches. TRUST has:

  • programs such as Meals on Wheels, Chore and Parish Nursing that provide services;
  • initiatives such as TRUST Builders and TRUST Youth which allow churches to collaborate on projects that they may not have the critical mass to undertake alone;
  • partnerships with places like Redeemer Residence to provide our Wreath of Love holiday gifts to all the residents there;
  • community events like our Dr. Martin Luther King Day celebration each year:
  • 2,000 volunteers who do the work; and, of course,
  • fundraisers like our annual TRUST auction to keep it all running.

We hope you will find the information about TRUST useful. Please contact us if you need more information or if you would like to volunteer or donate. Church affiliation is not necessary to volunteer or to receive services. TRUST welcomes all.
