Back Pack Donation

Olivia’s Trust loves to help provide back-to-school gear!

This time we were able to donate the 38 remaining bags and some school supplies needed to make sure every one of the of 80+ kids registered with the Dartmouth Salvation Army get their very own backpack!

We think there will be some very happy kids who get to pick out their fancy new backpack and school supplies this afternoon!

Thank you to all the people who donate to the Olivia Jollota Memorial Trust so we get to continue to do “great things!” in Olivia’s memory πŸ’œ

Back-to-school Donation 2018

The Olivia Jollota Memorial Trust is so very happy to be able to donate 8 backpacks filled to the brim with school supplies to the Woodlawn United Church.

Each student will receive a backpack, zippered binder, 2 packs of loose leaf, graph paper, report cover, 4 duo-tangs, single subject and 3-subject notebooks, page dividers, scientific calculator, 16 GB USB, pens, pencils, liquid paper and a pencil case along with a custom “Olivia’s Signature Tree” water bottle. We are also supplying bus tickets to help kids in need get back and forth to school.

Olivia would be thrilled to know she is helping kids go back to school in style so they can have a great new school year!

Thank you to every single person who supports us through our fundraising efforts so we can continue to do “great things!” in Olivia’s memory. Her kindness and compassion lives on in each of us πŸ’œ

Back-To-School 2018-2019

Back-to-school is just around the corner (sorry kids πŸ˜‰).

Olivia loved back-to-school. She loved the process of picking out new clothes and getting her school supplies in order. We can think of no better way to honour her memory than to provide kids with the same sense of joy during what can be an expensive and at times stressful time in their young lives.

Olivia’s Trust is helping two organizations this year as they gather items for kids and families who are in need of some extra help during his time of year. The Dartmouth Salvation Army and Woodlawn United Church.

We will be helping Dartmouth Salvation Army by joining them on Wednesday, August 22 from 1-6 pm at STAPLES in Dartmouth Crossing. We will be collecting back-to-school items and helping to supply some as well. Drop by with a donation.

We are also helping the Woodlawn United Church reach their goal to send the 40 kids they have registered in their program get outfitted with everything they need for a successful start to a new school year. The backpacks have all been provided and their congregation has filled 4 boxes with essential items but there is still a ways to go!!! Please feel free to drop off a donation to their location at 54 Woodlawn Road. Olivia’s Trust will step in to provide what the community does not.

Thank you for your support as we help the kids in our community get the best start to a new school year! Olivia would be so proud πŸ’œ
