We are fasting to help us to connect to our neighbours who are in need – people who are forced to fast by their poverty. Struggling HCDSB families need your help to purchase food and other basic necessities. Neighbours who often need to make really tough choices between food or rent or clothes for their children. We are giving because, believe it or not, there is a great need in Halton to help students – 10.5% of Halton children live in low-income households. Amazingly that’s about 3800 HCDSB Students….we had no idea that many children were in need. Poverty remains a powerful factor in whether a student succeeds in school. Please be kind, be generous and sponsor us for the HCCF 24 Hour Fast.


The Halton Catholic Children’s Foundation - HCCF, provides financial assistance to students and their families in need – creating Hope, Dignity and Equity so that students can access learning and education without financial barriers to success.


Struggling HCDSB families need your help to purchase food and other basic necessities, as well as financial assistance to participate fully in their education – for things like trips, team fees, and other learning materials.


COVID-19 has been really challenging for many students & their families. HCCF has financially assisted over 800 HCDSB students, since March 2020, with food, clothing & other basic necessities – 2X the number of students we would typically help in a similar time frame.


There are few things more important than accessible education. Your gift will help to remove financial barriers to learning, giving students in need the opportunity to succeed in school.


Your generosity makes a significant difference. Every child deserves the opportunity to succeed.
