SJHS #GivingTuesday creates a “giving week” of service

TRUMBULL—On November 27, St. Joseph High School will participate in #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities, and organizations to encourage philanthropy and celebrate generosity worldwide. #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving to kick off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support. Contributions to St Joes on #GivingTuesday can be given online at

In the spirit of philanthropy, service, and generosity, St Joseph High School students have expanded #GivingTuesday into “Giving Week”. As they ask for others to give back, St Joes will be doing the same.

“This will be such a great week for our entire school,” remarked Michele Krasznai, Director of Advancement and Alumni Affairs. “We want our community to know that while we’re asking for contributions to our SJ Fund—which goes toward scholarships, innovative programs, and activities—we also practice what we preach. Service is a core piece of St Joe’s mission.”

Below is a list of activities our students, faculty/staff, and alumni will participate in:

In addition, on Friday, November 30, St Joseph High School senior, Katie McKeon, will unveil her new service project—a Prom Dress Swap—that the school feels will truly demonstrate the moral character, generosity, and spirit of our giving community.
