Holy Trinity raised $1,250 for Baldwin House, and along with Catholic partner St. Joseph's, recently donated $2,500 to the facility that assists "women and their children in the transition from violent and abusive circumstances to a safe and secure environment and a renewed family by providing safe shelter and services, and encouraging them to realize their full human potential."
The funds were collected from the recent Sisters' Cup hockey game, played Dec. 10 in Cornwall.
The Falcons express thanks to all those in the community who supported the event and helped us raise funds and/or food donations.
