Together, they along with their various committee members support local groups, some of which include: The Boys and Girls Club of Thunder Bay, Ronald McDonald House, Easter Seals and other various charity and good work organizations.
Catholic students who are impacted by economic barriers, and who are in need warm winter wear will be ready for the season, and we are so fortunate for this blessing. Jackets were presented to Director of Education, Pino Tassone and Chairman of the Board, Bob Hupka this snowy afternoon.
Thank you for this generous donation!"
