Fathers’ Club

Mission and Purpose

The Holy Trinity Fathers’ Club is a parent service organization made up of dedicated fathers of the school.  The purpose of the HTSFC is to support our sons and daughters, in a spirit of volunteerism through various events held throughout the calendar year, as well as provide our time and talents in support of various fundraising and social events at the school.  The HTSFC enriches the Holy Trinity experience for our sons and daughters and serves as a vehicle for fathers to be more active in school life.

Membership

All current HTS School fathers are members to the HTS Fathers’ Club.  There is no cost for membership and no need to sign up or register for membership.  Throughout the year, you will receive notices for specific events and volunteer opportunities.  As you receive these notices, you will need to sign up and/or RSVP to these individual activities.

Annual Greg Gannon Food Drive and Deck the Halls  – early December

Last year the hard work and dedication of the Holy Trinity parish and School to a great cause produced more than 13,000 cans of food being donated to 2 local food banks.  Amazing! And on top of that, what a fun way for the whole family to get involved.  It was great for parents to see how excited the kids got when going out on that Saturday morning and collecting those bags full of food.

2017 HOLY TRINITY PARISH AND FATHERS CLUB GREG GANNON CANNED FOOD DRIVE

DECK THE HALLS AT HOLY TRINITY SCHOOL!!!

Date: DECEMBER 2, 2017

It is that time again.  We need your help and are so excited to have another year to help those in need during this Holiday Season.  Last year, through the leadership of our Fathers Club Group and the help of so many willing parents, faculty, and staff, we collected over 14,000 cans of food that went to St. Thomas More and St. Francis Xavier Churches in Southeast DC, and Holy Name Church in Northeast DC.  We look forward to another successful campaign this year!

If you participated in years past, last year, or would like to get involved NOW for the first time, it is very easy to do. All you need to do is click on the Parishes link: www.greggannoncfd.org/churches/trinity, then under Event Details select “Sign Up.”  This will show you a map of the territories Trinity is responsible for covering, and which families are already signed up for certain territories.  If you would like to volunteer, just click in the blue “Volunteer in Territory #XX” and fill in your information.   Please make sure you add your children as helpers on your team!  We will then supply territory volunteers with everything you need: bags, flyers, door hangers, on November 20th and 21st, per below.

We have T-Shirts for those who participate as well!  Last year, we had over 40 territories covered.  Once you sign up, you will be able to receive your bags as follows:

November 20-21, 2017 — Monday and Tuesday Morning Drop Off

  • Just drop your kids for school and pick up your bags; you will see us outside the Upper School entrance
  • TIPS on BAG DISTRIBUTION: You may distribute your bags to your territory at your convenience, but we suggest not doing so too early (the information you will receive details why)
  • Distributing bags over the Thanksgiving weekend may work (for example,on Friday), or the Monday or Tuesday (November 28-29 2016) before bag pick-up may be an optimal time.  It is totally up to you!! Whatever works and makes this a success is what matters

December 2, 2017 (Saturday) –

After 9:00am – Bag Pick Up by you and your team members in your territory!  This is the really fun part, especially for our little helpers, as you load your full bags in your cars!!!  PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU COUNT YOUR CANS/ITEMS AND KEEP A TALLY AS YOU GO – KIDS ARE A GREAT HELP IN THIS PROCESS!

11:00 to 1:00pm – Bag Drop off at Holy Trinity, in front of HTS’ Upper School and the Church.

When you are done, park, have a burger or dog, and help us out as we joyously Deck the Halls of our 2016 Blue Ribbon School!!!

WE NEED YOU, YOUR DESIRE TO HELP, AND YOUR COMMITMENT TO THOSE IN NEED. THANKS!!!
