7 schools across the region of Halton participated in an annual Sports Equipment Drive on November 3rd, 2017, donating sports equipment to an Indigenous community in northern Ontario.

The drive was organized by Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School in Oakville, inviting students, staff and families to donate items during the month of October. This year, the drive focused on building community and strengthening relationships, which was possible through the hard work and dedication of 7 Halton school communities, and the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) and Winch group who spearheaded the event.

The event was a huge success, collecting dozens of items that were delivered by the OPP to Indigenous communities up north. The school communities that participated and donated items this year included: Holy Trinity Catholic Secondary School, St. Christopher Catholic Elementary School, St. Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Secondary School, St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Secondary School, as well as St. Mildred's-Lightbourn School, Abbey Lane Public School, and Appleby College.

Special thanks is extended to Oakville Cares for advertising on social media, and a huge thank you to the students, staff, and families across Halton for their generous donations! An entire OPP trailer was filled with donations before it reached St. Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Secondary School.

We are thrilled that this year's contributions exceeded the donations offered in last year's equipment drive! ​​​​​​
