Community support & fundraisers
Holy Trinity is proud of the efforts of our students and staff who work diligently throughout the school year on many fundraisers that supplement student costs for school trips, and that contribute to important campaigns in our community. Some of our recent fundraisers include:
3rd Annual HT Business Christmas Market!
On December 6th, students in Ms. Dametto's Grade 9 and 10 Business classes raised $1632.80 for Grandview Kids Foundation at the 3rd Annual HT Business Christmas Market! Students harnessed their entrepreneurial Christmas Spirit to brainstorm business ideas, and work through the research, production and marketing stages of product development ahead of the Market. Their sales and customer service efforts were felt across the school community as students and staff took turns visiting the market to purchase gifts for loved ones and enjoy the activities available, all in the name of a good cause! A special thank you to all of the additional vendors who participated, including Ms. Kannan's music class, Mrs. Mundy's English classes, Mr. Wornoff's Construction Tech classes, Mrs. Carpinelli's Art classes, Ms. Beganyi's Religion class and the Social Justice and Astronomy Clubs. Well done, Titans!
Christmas Toy, Food & Gift Card Drive 2024
HT Student Cabinet, on behalf of all Titans, has donated $1700 in support of Society of St Vincent de Paul and their gift card program for families in need in our community. Ms. Cheryl Geofroy accepted the cheque and gift cards and is pictured with Ms Conforti (HT Principal) and Mr Preciado (Chaplain) and members of the HT Student Cabinet.
The HT Social Justice club assisted in organizing our annual Toy/Food Drive. Mr Jim Hogan accepted the Toy and Food donation from Mr Preciado.
Annual Terry Fox Campaign
United Way Campaign
Each year Holy Trinity students and staff participate in the Board-wide United Way campaign. Money raised through staff donations, fundraising activities, and dress down days is used to support local community agencies, many of which directly support our families and students. In 2023, Holy Trinity managed to raise a Grand Total of $2,233.00. Another example of HT excellence!!
In 2016, Holy Trinity partnered with not-for-profit called Soles4Souls and we managed to collect over 5000 pairs of shoes (For context: 1 pair =5 meals for a family, 20 pairs = 1 year of shelter, 30 pairs = 1 year of school). We partnered with Soles4Souls again this year (2021) and we finished with 3400 pairs of shoes. That works out to 113 kids sent to school OR 170 families shelter for the year. AH-MAZING. It's also almost 6 shoes per student at HT
