Opinion: Trinity Catholic School in Massena thanks community for raising $80,000
To the Editor:
Trinity Catholic School was blown away by the support from our extended Trinity family on our One Day of Giving event earlier in November We set a goal of $60,000 to kick start our annual Trinity Fund campaign, but our supporters went well above and beyond for our school. In total, we raised over $80,000 for our school.This generous support came from the pockets of current families, former families, grandparents, alumni, teachers, local organizations and businesses, and supporters of Catholic education. While Massena and the surrounding communities make up a large part of our donations, we have supporters from as far as Maine, Maryland, South Carolina, Florida, and even California. How amazing is that? Next year, I’d love to see more states represented.
These much-needed funds go into the general operating fund of TCS. This year, the One Day of Giving donations have been earmarked to make improvements to our buildings. While Trinity Catholic School celebrated 40 years this year, the main building is nearing 100 years old! As with a house, there are always improvements and upgrades needed, especially in older buildings. We want our buildings to be safe, modern for our students! You can donate to this fund at any time, if you missed this event.
Although I am in the process of writing thank you notes to each of our donors, I could not continue without pausing to say how appreciative we are of every one of you for the extra time and energy you put into our school. As the saying goes, “It takes a village.” It absolutely takes every one of our Trinity families, faculty, and staff members, as well as the kind and generous efforts of our loving donors to keep Trinity thriving. Thank You.
We wish you all a Merry Christmas, and a happy 2024.
Trinity Catholic School, Massena
