8th Graders from Holy Trinity Make a difference


Victoria and her mother Jeanne present Debra Adzema, lead House Manager, with a check.

 What an unexpected surprise to receive a phone call from Victoria, an 8th grade student at Holy Trinity Roman Catholic School. Victoria organized a fundraiser for Fontebella Maternity Home during the final days of the 2012 school year.

With approval from the school Principal, Holy Trinity students were allowed to dress down and not wear their uniforms when the donated any amount from $1.00 – $5.00; all to benefit Fontebella. The students raised over $400 – what a wonderful gift from these young people! Fontebella is the only maternity home serving the area from St. Louis to Mount Vernon and South to Carbondale.

We provide our guests shelter, educational programs, individual counseling, as well as life skills and so much more!

Thank you Victoria and all the students at Holy Trinity who helped raise this money, insuring that more young ladies will have a safe place to have their babies.
