About Fundraising for Howard
Funds raised pay for holiday hampers and subsidize school events for Howard families in need. Funds also go to support Health & Wellness programs, field trips, Equity Programs, tech upgrades, graduation yearbooks, student-led initiatives and hopefully in person events like Carnaval D’Hiver, a musical and graduation event.
The auction was put together by a small team of volunteers. The items have all been donated by generous local businesses and individuals.
More information on the Howard School Council website Auction page and Fundraising page.
Thank you again for taking action and supporting the kids of Howard in any way you can.
Sincerely, The Fundraising Volunteers
