Prior to the January 2010 earthquake, 900 families of the Chabanne district of Petit-Goave, Haiti were making do with a water protection facility in need of repair. It has failed completely as a result of the earthquake. Our parish has partenered with the Ste. Jeanne D’Arc Haiti Foundation to raise funds for a properly engineered water-well to be dug in the area to provide clean sub-terranean drinking water.
Over $10,000 has already been raised! Our immediate goal is $12,000… we are almost there!
Please support our effort to help the people of Haiti through the 50/50 Raffle (June 5th & 6th) and our Basket Auction (baskets assembled on various themes and sold by silent auction to highest bidder)
To contribute financially, checks may be made out to St. Bartholomew with Haiti in the memo line.
