The Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario established The Good Samaritan Trust Fund (GSTF) with the aim of helping students and families within the Catholic school community who are in dire straits, those who needs are beyond what organizations such as food banks, snowsuit funds, breakfast clubs, etc. can offer. One hundred per cent of all monies donated to the fund are disbursed to families in need with all administrative and committee work carried out by volunteers.
This year, the GSTF has launched a fundraising campaign which will continue from January to June 2019, instead of holding a golf tournament. The theme of the campaign is, “Making a Difference — Joyfully”.
Since the inception of the fun, more than $289,000 has been disbursed to students and families in need. Last year, the fund distributed more than $34,000.
The GSTF campaign is seeking support from the public in the form of either a monetary donation or by donation of an item that could be used for a raffle prize. Charitable donation receipts are available upon request for all donations of $20 or more.
Donations can be mailed or delivered to the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario, 2755 Highway 43, P. O. Box 2222, Kemptville, Ontario, K0G 1J0, to the attention of Leah Finley. Note that monetary donations can be made by cheque (payable to CDSBEO) or by Visa or Mastercard.
