The Tribune Staff Reports

The Trinity High Resale Shop recently donated $90,000 to Trinity Lutheran High School in Seymour.

This amount, combined with all of the donations from the resale shop since its startup in 2005, totaled a combined milestone of $1 million.

That was announced during the recent volunteer luncheon at Batar in Seymour. Resale shop volunteers, managers and members of the board of directors were among those attending. Special guests included Lu Wolka and Mary Foster, the original manager of the shop.

The resale shop on West Second Street in Seymour is staffed entirely by volunteers. Nearly 100% of the proceeds go directly to support the mission of Trinity Lutheran High School in providing a quality, Christ-centered secondary education.

“The students, faculty and staff of Trinity Lutheran High School wish to thank and congratulate all the volunteers of the Trinity High Resale Shop for the countless hours, hard work and dedication they provide to our Trinity students,” said Dave Probst, director of development for the school.

“In the last 12 months, our volunteers raised $90,000 in student tuition scholarships for Trinity and reached a milestone of $1 million in total tuition scholarships for our students over the last 14 years,” he said. “Congratulations and God’s blessings to all the volunteers of the Trinity High Resale Shop for reaching the $1 million milestone.”
