Another very successful Heaven Cent campaign concluded earlier this week with the annual Celebration of Giving. During the Advent campaign students and staff at St. Mary’s College raised over $15,200 in only three weeks.
On Tuesday of this week various organizations made their way to SMC as part of the Celebration of Giving. That is where they received cheques from $500 to $1,000 to support the various initiatives they lead.
Funds were distributed to organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, THRIVE Child Development, the YMCA, Soup Kitchen Community Centre, Algoma Autism Foundation, Breaking Away, Pauline’s Place, the Métis Nation of Ontario, Breton House, St. Vincent Place, Breaking Away, Women in Crisis and the Pregnancy Centre.
Other money collected was distributed to students and families within the HSCDSB that find themselves in need at this time of the year.
