Here is the glass that started it all… Jym Line Glassware Ltd. created this glass as a fundraiser to help out in their community during this tumultuous time. Each glass is $10 (taxes include) of which $5 is being donated to local area organizations in East Hants where Jym Line is located.
The glass proved to be so popular, the first run SOLD OUT in a few hours on April 15 and Tom Adams, President is Jym Line was able to donate $535.00 to the Caring and Sharing Angel Tree Food Bank on April 16! Now that’s how it’s done! Way to go Tom 👊🏼 Tom has committed to printing more glasses and is currently working on reserving orders for the next run due by April 23.
Olivia’s Trust works closely with Jym Line as they are an ardent supporter of The Trust in all ways. The Trust has decided to match Jym Line’s donations to organizations in HRM, with a focus on Dartmouth as that is Olivia’s community. Our first donation of $535.00 will be to the St. Thomas More Food Bank in East Dartmouth. Our second donation is earmarked for P.A.C.T. (Parents and Children Together) in Cole Harbour.
If you would like to help these efforts please consider buying a glass (go to the Jym Line Glassware Facebook page for details on how to purchase a glass for yourself or someone else). You can also make donations directly to the Olivia Jollota Memorial Trust with directions that your donation be reserved for COVID 19 relief and we will ensure that is where it goes.
This is the time of year we excitedly put out a post announcing our upcoming annual Bowling Tournament and Silent Auction fundraiser. This event has always been held the Saturday after the May Victoria Day long weekend. While we have the alley booked for May 23rd, it is currently closed due the virus 🦠. We do not know if it will re-open by this date or what social distancing will look like at that time.
We will likely have to postpone or possibly cancel our event for the safety and well-being of our supporters. We are debating whether to run some of the components such as the ever popular Craft Beer, Wine and Spirit Board and a handmade quilt raffle. Stay tuned for updates.
Olivia’s Trust still plans to award a post-secondary scholarship to a student currently set to graduate from Prince Andrew High School in June 2020. Since schools are closed and we do not know when they will re-open, it may not be possible for students wishing to apply to get their applications in to Student Services by the May 15th deadline. Therefore, if you are a student or know of a student that will graduate this year and wish to apply for our scholarship, please send your essay along with 2 letters of recommendation directly to email@example.com for consideration.
Olivia’s Trust will soon be making donations to organizations in most need that meet our mandate. Once we have made our choices, another post will go out to let you know where your support is helping during these uncertain and challenging times.

Trustees, friends and volunteers with the Olivia Jollota Memorial Trust are excited to announce Christmas Giving 2019!
On Monday, December 23rd, Olivia’s Trust is hosting a Christmas Bingo for the senior residents at Ocean View Continuing Care Centre in Eastern Passage. We look forward to helping the residents with their games while giving out all the Bingo prizes we purchased for this festive event. We will be providing items to hopefully make day-to-day living more enjoyable and a little easier for the residents and staff as well as some extra special gifts for patients living with dementia. And of course some of Olivia’s Signature Tree items will make their way to the Centre as well!
At the end of the Bingo there will be a special performance by The Unconscious Collective Vocal Ensemble, an a cappella group of Halifax university students.
We truly want to thank everyone who attended our fundraisers, donated money, time and items for our auction and supported us this year. It is because of your kindness and generosity we are able to pay it forward by helping those less fortunate in our communities.
Once again the Dartmouth East office will be collecting back to school supplies on behalf of the Olivia Jollota Memorial Trust.
Olivia was a wonderful young person full of dreams. She loved the anticipation of back-to-school and enjoyed helping other. Olivia’s kindness lives on through her good deeds. Help Olivia continue to do “great things!”
Let’s honour Olivia by donating school supplies in her name. You can drop off your donated items at my office 73 Tacoma Dr suite 204, Mon – Fri 9 to 4
