Our second training session will take place this Sunday, February 27th from 3-5 p.m. at Holy Trinity in Danbury (74 Joes Hill Rd., Danbury, CT).
This is our fundraising session for our biggest fundraiser—Mock Stock Sales. For those of you who are new to the team, each teen will be sending letters to friends and family asking them to “invest” in their youth mission work. Each teen is required to bring names and addresses pre-printed on peel and stick address labels to use for this fundraiser. We recommend that families use their Christmas card address lists. If you have any trouble making your labels you can contact Beth (firstname.lastname@example.org). Mock Stock sales will also take place at each parish during coffee hours and the procedure will be explained to your teen at the meeting. Families with more than one team member need only make one address list and siblings can share it.
At this meeting the remainder of the payment for the trip is due. The total cost of the trip per teen is $350. Please bring a check (made out to Holy Trinity) or cash for the total minus the deposit you made initially for your teen’s fees.
We are also looking for a parent volunteer to prepare something simple for meal (baked ziti, a ham, mac and cheese—whatever you like!). We can reimburse you for the cost of the ingredients if you wish.
Team members are asked to bring $5 for dinner.
As always, if you are unable to attend this meeting for any reason please let us know in advance.
Thank you and looking forward to seeing everyone on Sunday!
