Haiti Fundraising Project Update

After learning that Mission Possible’s LaHatte School was severely damaged by the January 12, 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Alexis Reese and the Hartness-Thornwell Memorial PC youth group made a pledge to do what they could to help raise the money to re-build the school. Since that time, they have given up weekend packages, donated their own money, and asked others in our community and beyond to contribute to their cause.

This past Saturday, May 1, they held a very successful bake sale just outside our local BiLo store and raised $904.25 in additional donations. With a matching gift of $700 by Mr. Wilson W. Farrell, the total raised as a result of Saturday’s bake sale was $1,604.25!

All together, Thornwell youth have raised over $5,000 to help re-build the LaHatte School!

Congratulations Thornwell youth on a job very well done!!
