Donate to Haiti Mission Efforts

Our next mission to Haiti leaves in late February.  Consistent with our overall emphasis there, we will be working on providing school computers, clean water and solar power.  Our school lunch program is now feeding 400 students each day.

We are so appreciative of the longstanding support at our church of this work.  For February, we have two priorities.

First, our school lunch program has struggled of late with consistent funding and can use a better base of support. Each lunch only costs 35 cents per student per day.

– $7 buys a month of lunches for one student

– $40 covers six months of lunches for one student

– $70 pays for a whole school year of lunches

– $250 to $400 affords lunches for a whole school for a week

During February we are looking for donations to help.  Thanks for your consideration.  Just designate your donation to the Haiti Mission.

Second, we are looking to take new clothes for boys in February.  We have delivered hundreds of dresses for school age girls and teens over the past year.  These were provided by the Hands for Haiti group at San Ramon Valley UMC.  However, we have never provided much in the way of new clothes for boys.  We would like to take as many new or almost new T shirts, shorts and pants for young boys and teens this trip.

Just leave your donation in our collection boxes in the sanctuary or church office by no later than February 22nd.  The team leaves on the 24th.
