HAITI AFTER-SCHOOL PROJECT

St. Margaret’s Outreach Summer Drive for St. André’s Church, Haiti

Now that you’ve read about Soledad’s efforts, it’s our turn to take it to the next level. We are asking all of you for your help with this donation drive - which will take place during three of the Sundays in July: July 2, July 9 and July 16. The children in St. André’s church school are ages 6-14. We are looking for the following donated items for both school and after-school activities:

  • Backpacks
  • Rulers & Pencil Cases
  • Notebooks
  • Pens, Pencils, Crayons
  • Coloring Books
  • Board Games         
    (sample games: Chess, Checkers, Candy Land, Jenga, etc.

And of course, we will gladly accept any financial donations you’d like to make. (Please make checks payable to St. Margaret’s Church with the words – St. André’s Outreach – in the memo.)

We’ll hang a poster in the Narthex to remind you of the items needed and a large bin will be nearby where you can drop off your donations. Outreach checks can be given to either me, Kim or Debbie. Soledad will be shipping our donations down to Haiti toward the end of July and will be traveling there with her Mom in mid-August to hand-deliver the donations and set up the program. I can’t think of a better way to reach out to help God’s children.

Thanks so much and God Bless!
