Steph's Place #8

We are headed to Jamaica October 16-20 with Food for the Poor to continue Stephanie Crispinelli's legacy of building schools for children who need it most.

Sadly, Stephanie lost her life during the earthquake in Haiti in 2010.  She was there on her second mission trip with Food for the Poor after enjoying her experience the year prior in Jamaica.

After the Earthquake, many friends, families, and others indicated a strong desire to help. In Stephanie’s memory, Lin and Lenny Crispinelli, along with Stephanie’s brothers, Michael and Nicholas, started building schools each year in Jamaica. So far, seven elementary schools have been built in Jamaica, all titled “Steph’s Place.” We will be joining the Crispinelli family and friends to build an eighth school.

Funds raised will help support our participation in the construction of the new school and provide toys and learning materials for the children.  Additionally, your contribution will go towards supporting the entire community with items they desperately need like food and clean drinking water. 

We would really appreciate the support and so would the children and families you'll be helping through your donation.
