The 18th annual COVE Alliance Seeds of Hope Fundraiser was a huge success! We are thankful to St. Mary of Vernon and Fr. Ignatius for allowing us to host the event at SMV and thrilled that Fr. Hilary Muheezangango, our Executive Director, was able to travel here from Uganda to participate in the event. Our donors were extremely generous and we were able to raise approximately $31,500 to help supplement Healthcare and Education program increases. We are also happy to announce that due to the generosity of those in attendance, we were able to provide 8 more children with a sponsor!

WEBALE NYO! Thank you very much!

VHGive Fundraiser

From Feb. 13-17, Vernon Hills High School (VHHS) students participated in the VHGive COVE fundraiser for the new cafeteria pavilion at their sister school, St. Jerome COVE Center in Kapeeka, Uganda. All week long, students raised funds in a variety of ways: through classroom donations, by purchasing bracelets to show support of “Cougars for COVE,” and through donating during lunch periods. VHGive student ambassadors challenged their peers to raise $1,400 to be used to provide every student with their own place setting, and any additional funds to be used for St. Jerome's greatest needs. They more than exceeded that challenge, raising a grand total of $3,315.81!! A deep heartfelt thanks goes out to VHHS!
