St. Mary’s Catholic Church has sponsored a “Haiti Relief” fundraiser for the past several years. Recently the founder of this project passed away and the board has picked up the pieces and continued the process. The orphanage houses a group of girls who are the poorest of the poor. They live in safety from crime, prostitution, drugs and gang violence. 

They receive schooling and health care as they strive to grow from young girls into young ladies, with an opportunity to become a leader in their country one day. You can be a part of saving these children through donations made to the church’s Haiti Fund.
