Children’s Clothes for Haiti Orphanage Drive
: Children Of Christ Orphanage (COCO) in our twin community of Pignon, Haiti supports 52 children in residence, ages 2-20, as well as roughly 170 orphans in other locations within the Hinche Diocese.
St. Mary’s Haiti Ministry set out an orphanage box in the Narthex so that parishioners may donate suitable summer clothes, shoes, toys, etc. for these children. Items will be collected until the end of May and then shipped to Dr. Acene’s Ft. Pierce, FL where these items will be shipped for transport to Pignon by his contact person in residence. Thank you for your continued generosity to the poor. Please contact Dick Neves for more information or with questions: firstname.lastname@example.org
