Haitian Outreach Opens Pack House and Donation Center May 2016

 

Haitian Outreach volunteers pack bags of rice to be sent to families in Haiti.

The New England cold winter months are over and we are on our way to completing our count of supplies needed for the 2017 school year. We are close to 300 backpacks to buy and fill for the upcoming year. If you are fortunate enough to be able to help us to reach the total number of items we need, we would love to have your help

Upon returning from Haiti in March we added approximately 70 new students to our program. This means donations are critical to support these new children. If you would like to sponsor a new child, please click Child Sponsorship Program.

We are grateful for every donation we receive. Donated items may be dropped off at our new pack house located behind the old St. Bernard's church at the rear of Water Street in Fitchburg.  If you need to schedule a drop-off, please contact Pauline Aliskevicz at 978 807-4397 or Rose Mary Richards at (978) 342-9118. 

Monetary donations will be accepted by either clicking on DONATE or sending a check to Haitian Outreach, P.O. Box 16, Fitchburg MA  01420.  No donation is too small and every donation goes to the families in Haiti.

We are grateful for our volunteer team who unselfishly give of their time to count, pack and fill bins with needed school supplies for our 6 schools in Haiti.


Haitian Outreach Adds New School in Des Coteaux       January 2016

Haitian Outreach is assisting the Sisters of the Immaculate Queen Mary Order to start a new school in Des Coteaux, Haiti. Two sisters will teach the children on tarps and sheets outside as they don’t have a building. They will live in a shack with no running water. The education the children will receive enormously out ways these conditions and shows the sacrifice that children will make to go to school.  They are amazing and will do whatever it takes to achieve their dream. To begin, we were able to send many donated items to help start this new journey.


St. Bernard's at St. Camillus Church TOP themselves in Donations!                                                                                                                                       January 2016 

During the month of January Haitian Outreach worked collaboratively with the parishioners to collect food, clothing and school supplies for donations to Haiti. These items go directly to our sponsored children of our 6 schools and their families. This year the response was overwhelming. Food, clothing, monetary donations, personal items and

school supplies were collected.

A parishioner of St. Camillus de, who would like to remain anonymous, donated funds to accommodate 22 children with tuition and backpacks for the school year! This person has been a Fitchburg resident all his life. He has been very supportive to the Haitian Outreach mission, and for that we are grateful.


Lilivois Innovates with New Computers December 2015  

Sr.Cadet is quite the innovator. With the assistance of Haitian Outreach and other ministries, she has a Computer Room, Fish Farm, and Quilting Co-op. 

Using solar as her main source of power, she is a champion for her school and the educational projects that she manages.

Sr. Cadet is really amazing and with little resources, introduces her children to the 21st Century. Kudos Sister!
