Bishop Timon – St. Jude High School Exceeds Fundraising Goal!
Timon is pleased to announce that through the generosity of our committed alumni and benefactors, $20,091 was contributed during its One Day Giving Campaign on Tuesday, April 25.
This strong show of support doubled the $10,000 goal that was established for the day! Added to that, an anonymous donor donated a $10,000 match, making the total $31,091 for the Day of Giving. These funds will be added to the Strong In Faith Fund which helps keep tuition affordable.
In the days following the Day of Giving, an additional $4,460 was received, making the grand total $35,551 raised through this one-day giving campaign. It's not too late to become part of Timon's tradition! To make a gift towards the Strong In Faith Fund, please visit http://timongiving.com/.
In conjunction with its One Day Giving Campaign, Timon held its Day of Service. The students, staff, and faculty visited different locations around Western New York including
Friends of the Night People, South Buffalo Community Table, The Valley Community Association, Our Lady of Charity Parish (St. Ambrose and Holy Family Worship Sites), St. Martin's Church, South Side Elementary School, Lorraine Elementary School, West Seneca Senior Center, Tosh Collins Senior Center, St. Thomas Aquinas Parish, Cazenovia Library
Timon students shared their experiences on how they made a difference in their community. Freshman Jonny Wang, volunteered at Lorraine Academy, "We had a good time there! We helped some second-grade students plant sunflowers, and then we played a game about math with flash cards. I learned something while helping others, for example, how to plant or like how to get along with the little kids and how to teach them. I think maybe we should do this kind of event more than once a year! I feel great, I'm so proud of myself that I did that."
Peter Liu, sophomore, added, "We had a lot of fun there. I think the meaning behind our Day of Giving is trying to become kinder and gentler. I was proud of myself and happy that I could help others. I wish school would hold more events like this, we can learn more things while we are helping others."
It's not too late - You still have time to make your gift!
