Thank you to Wachusett High School Think Globally Act Locally volunteers, to our cooks, Chris and Scott, and to Kelly King and her team of family volunteers! Special thanks to our sponsors and contributors Flagg RV, Sunnyside Ford, Blushing Bee, Val’s Restaurant, and Dunkin Donuts. The Senior Center of Holden could not have been more gracious or more accommodating. The pictures tell the story!!! See you next year!
To date, we have funded 10 volunteers who have contributed more than 200 days of work in Haiti. We were honored to have them at the breakfast. BJ Hill of Leicester recently returned from his three months trip, offering Habitat for Humanity his information technology skills, and working with cholera victims on the weekends. Tommy Burn, a Connecticut architect will leave January 19, to spend a week checking on the group home he is helping to build for severely disabled children who lost their home in the earthquake. It will be Tommyâ€™s fourth trip. Annie Doyle of Worcester worked in Haiti early on helping traumatized children recover from their fear. Sarah McRell, a nurse from UMASS Medical Center was funded for her second trip to Haiti as she worked with children at a Port Au Prince clinic. It was a delight to meet and honor each of them.
The breakfast was a huge success as people concerned about Haiti were together at a time when Haitians still cry out for our help. Two young women came to the breakfast to get applications for funding a portion of the trip they intend to take in June. They are graduating from school as physical therapists and the first offering of their skill will be in Haiti where they will teach body mechanics to Haitians and volunteers alike. It was also a financial victory as we raised enough money at the breakfast to fund these two wonderful young women!
Thank you, one and all, for the generosity you have given to the hopes of many!
