To once again celebrate our unique Catholic heritage, SHCS is participating in #iGiveCatholic, the first-ever giving day created to rally the Catholic community on #GivingTuesday, November 27th – a global day of giving. Donors make secure, tax-deductible donations to their parish, school, alma mater, and favorite ministries. Donations will be accepted on iGiveCatholic.org now through 11:59 pm, November 27th.
As part of our ongoing health and wellness initiative, we are seeking donations to help us purchase three more bottle filling stations, so we are able to have one in every area of the school. These stations promote health and wellness by encouraging students to stay hydrated during the day and by reducing students’ contact with germs. One study found that regular use of filling stations over traditional water fountains decreased the spread of gastrointestinal illnesses by 33 percent. Also, these fountains, which can each produce the equivalent of 20,000 20-oz. bottles of water throughout their lifetime, reduce costs spent on plastic water bottles, environmental pollution from plastic bottles, and energy to produce disposable water bottles.
Please make your donation today to help our students soar into healthy living! Please go to https://knoxville.igivecatholic.org/organizations/sacred-heart-cathedral-school-knoxville to help us with this initiative. Thank you and God Bless!
