Dante House usually sponsors 2 Red Cross Blood Drives during the school year, one in the fall, and one in the spring.  This year, for the obvious COVID reason, we were unable to do this.  But we would like to encourage any of you who are 16 years old or older to visit your local Red Cross Blood Donation center and donate!  Also, encourage your family and friends to donate as well.  Eligible donors can give blood every 56 days, so you could potentially give twice before we return to school next fall.  So, think about it – give the gift of life – and help save up to 3 lives!
See or email Mrs. Mason if you have any questions!

If you have signed up for anything using your Trinity email account and plan on using it after graduation, be sure to update your contact information with a non-Trinity email address. All access to Office 365, including your OneDrive and email, will be disabled on June 1st.

The Louisville Youth Philanthropy Council (LYPC) provides a diverse team of up to 35 high school students (public, private and parochial) from Jefferson County, and those contiguous to it, with a hands-on experience in grant-making and philanthropy during a 16-week program on Saturdays during the school year (August – March). LYPC strives to educate youth about philanthropy – thus creating an appreciation of our community needs and how they can be met. Whether that leads to a philanthropic career path or not, we are raising awareness for the “third-sector” of our country’s structure and the important role it plays.  We also create civic engagement, teaching the students how to get involved in the community while we are developing the next generation of philanthropic leaders. The LYPC is a free program and open to any high school students with a passion to make a difference and a commitment to learning. The toolkits outline info about the program and applications can be completed online at https://www.lypc.org/apply-to-the-lypc.
