In an effort to raise additional funds, Holy Trinity Catholic School is participating in the Box Tops for Education program. This program has been an easy way for parents and students to earn cash that goes directly to the school. Schools can earn up to $20,000 b clipping Box Tops coupons from 240 products and can earn eBoxTops by shopping online through the Box Tops Marketplace. Online shoppers can support year-round through Box Tops Marketplace by signing up at btfe.com. If community members are interested in contributing to Holy Trinity Catholic School's efforts by donating Box Tops, please put them in the boxes available in the church or by mailing them directly to HTCS at 301 S. Second Street, Bay St. Louis, MS 39520. If you have any questions please call Holy Trinity at 467-5158. Each and every donation is greatly appreciated!
