Join us for an interesting and engaging HCCF Speaker Series event with Adam van Koeverden – Member of Parliament, Olympic athlete with four medals, and graduate of St. Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Secondary School.

Adam grew up with a younger brother and a single mom in community housing in North Oakville. He identifies that growing up in community housing taught him the importance of a strong compassionate community that works together. Adam is very passionate about working with youth and helping them to succeed. We look forward to hearing him speak and to the Q & A portion of his chat.

WHO WE ARE

The Halton Catholic Children’s Foundation (HCCF) is an independent charity. We have partnered with the Halton Catholic District School Board (HCDSB) to support their students and families in need throughout Halton (Acton, Burlington, Georgetown, Halton Hills, Milton, Oakville). We raise funds to help HCDSB students overcome financial barriers to learning, which helps our students succeed in school.

WHAT WE DO

“….whatever you do for the least of these, my brothers and sisters, you do for me…” Matthew 25:40

As a Catholic Community, we are called by Jesus to care for others. We meet this calling by providing Hope, Dignity, and Equity to students and families in need.

We raise funds to help cover costs for:

  • Basic necessities, such as food and clothing, school supplies, shoes, eyeglasses, personal hygiene items, and learning technology
  • School activities with a fee, such as school trips, team fees, and other learning materials
