Mission Trip Fundraising
As you think about how to pay for this trip, keep in mind that this is an opportunity for you to ask your teen to make a sacrifice (Mission work is about sacrifice). Maybe your teen could use money from a job to help pay the cost. Or maybe the trip could be part of a birthday or Christmas present. Think outside of the box and find ways to involve your teen in raising the funds. This will make the trip even more meaningful to your teen.
Fr. Don has allowed us two opportunities to raise funds for this trip:
Spirit Nights- We will team up with some local restaurants to host spirit nights. When families eat at the restaurant on our designated night and they mention St. Gabriel, then a portion of their sale goes towards the mission trip. When we schedule these nights, we may need help from the youth to be there as greeters and/or servers. If that is the case, the teens who help will directly benefit from the funds raised. If you would like to participate in these nights, please fill out the form below.
Solicitation Letter- We will provide you with a letter that you can personalize and send out to your friends and family asking for donations towards the trip for your teen. Their donations will come directly to the church and will be tax-deductible (as stated in the letter). Donations could be made by check, cash or online. Click here for online donations page.
