The effects of Hurricane Mathew in 2016, and the large earthquake in 2010, have devastated Haiti and the quality of life for the residents. In an effort to help in any way we can from Traverse City, MI, we solicited donations and were able get a large and generous contribution from the local public school district. Over 5000 desks, chairs, and school furniture items that were scheduled to be replaced were donated! We now have 3 large shipping containers full of supplies that need to make it schools in Haiti. Unfortunately, that came with a higher than expected bill of roughly $24,000.00; $15,000 to ship the containers and an estimated $8100-$9300 for custom costs in Haiti. We are asking for help to hit this goal and get these essential supplies to Haiti. Any and all contributions will help and we thank you for all of your support!
