Holy Trinity fosters an environment where students are encouraged to use their gifts and talents in service to others. Students apply Catholic social teachings in real world experiences. This is accomplished in a variety of ways. The school conducts food drives to benefit the local community regularly. Student Council sponsors monthly “Free Dress” days for $2.00. These funds are donated to local families or charities each month. They also help out when asked to for special events, like our local LAPD’s Helping Badge Program. Toys, gift cards, and canned goods were donated by our student body to help local families during the holidays. Our jog-a-thin funds are used to support several charities such as ALS, Diabetes, SIDS, Autism, and several other foundations.
Each classroom or grade also has a social justice project that they complete each year.
The entire school writes letters to soldiers at Christmas and Valentine’s Day, and helps our any way needed for our school families and the community.

Projects for Social Justice teach the students to be concerned for the less fortunate. Even though giving money is easy, we need to see where our donations go. Projects at Holy Trinity School have a lesson incorporated in them. For example, 5-1 had a math lesson in their social project, selling baked goods to raise money for the less fortunate. When the school has a social justice project, the students doing it connect and relate with the charity.
4th Grade Bake Sale
In 4th grade for their social justice project this year they had a bake sale. This was to raise money for orphans to help them get after school programs to give them the education they need.The most popular item at the bake sale was donuts and the least sold item was cookies. They raised a good sum of money from this event.
