Donation for Phoenix 2017

Next up to receive some kindness this holiday season from Olivia’s Trust is Phoenix.

Olivia’s passion was helping others, especially those less fortunate. She helped many friends who had lost their homes for various reasons so we could think of no better way to honour her memory than to give to Phoenix.

Today Olivia’s Trust donated winter coats, hats, mitts, socks, toiletries and other goodies for 6 females and 6 males 🎁

If you or your family and friends are looking for a way to donate or give back you should consider Phoenix. Go to http://www.phoenixyouth.ca for their Wish List and ways to donate.

Silent Auction Donations Needed

The ∞Olivia Jollota Memorial Trust∞ is seeking donations from businesses and individuals for our upcoming Annual Bowling Tournament and Silent Auction fundraiser scheduled for May 27, 2017.  This event will be held at the Woodside Bowlarama starting at 7 pm.

If you own a business or have a service/product you can offer we would love to receive it!  Any item, gift certificate or monetary donation, no matter how big or small will be most appreciated!

All proceeds of this event will go directly back to the ∞Olivia Jollota Memorial Trust∞ to grant scholarships to future post-secondary students at Prince Andrew High School.  We will also be issuing money in the coming months to other organizations in our community that service animals and youth and those less fortunate which can benefit from Olivia’s generosity and kindness!

Thank you in advance for your contribution!

2016 Back-To-School Donations!!!

The Olivia Jollota Memorial Trust is so pleased to be able to donate 10 backpacks chock full of all the school supplies a high school student could possibly want for back-to-school!

This is our second year making a back-to-school donation for underprivileged kids.  We know Olivia would be so pleased to see the impact her Trust is making in our community!  Nicole and I had such a great time picking out the school supplies all the while thinking of the supplies Olivia would have wanted for back-to-school.

Without generous donations from our wonderful supporters and some fantastic fundraising events this type of giving back would not be possible.  A special thanks to Staples and Giant Tiger for their great prices and sales which helped us donate so much than last year!
