TRTF has raised over $191,000 in donations this calendar year to date. The Foundation had an especially successful Covid-19 appeal during the month of April that raised more than $54,000. These funds were used to help many retirees who lost income as substitute teachers when schools closed during the pandemic. The “A Helping Hand” program has provided more than $20,000 in grants to 38 recipients in 2020. If you or someone you know needs assistance with medical bills, home or auto repairs, utility bills, purchasing groceries, etc. please reach out to for a “A Helping Hand” application today!
