Niagara Catholic Raises $33,000 for Mary’s Meals



On Random Act of Kindness Day earlier this month, Niagara Catholic held a system-wide Oatmeal Day in support of Mary’s Meals Canada, which was co-founded by the late Bridgid Davidson, an Educational Resource Teacher at Sacred Heart Catholic Elementary School.

Our goal was to raise $8,800 – enough to feed a school of 800 children one hot meal a day for an entire year.

This week, Niagara Catholic Director of Education John Crocco announced we raised close to four times that amount – an excess of $33,000, which will feed more than 3,000 children in Malawi one hot meal a day for an entire year.

It is the first time in the organization’s history that an entire Board of Education has supported Mary’s Meals with such a sweeping initiative, said Daniel Adams, Head of Fundraising for Mary’s Meals who travelled to Canada for the event.
