Centre Vie, a locally sponsored orphanage in Haiti, gives thanks

In the spirit of thanksgiving, the children of Centre Vie orphanage in St. Marc, Haiti, wish to thank the generous donors of the community of Mississippi Mills for their recent contribution to the support of the orphanage.

Generous contributions in response to recent articles in the Millstone — a locally sponsored orphanage in Haiti, needs help and the Community Presbyterian Church Yard and Bake Sale — have made it possible to restore infrastructure at the orphanage that had been badly damaged by the tropical storm and earthquake that hit Haiti in August of this year.
