Helping Haiti before the earthquake

Posted:

EDGEWOOD (KWWL) - We know about the desperation in Haiti, but one local group of kids wanted to help the struggling country even before the disaster.

Wednesday night, the CCD class at St. Mark's Catholic Church in Edgewood packaged food to be sent to Hati.

As part of a yearly Act Of Kindness, last fall the kids decided to raise money for Haiti. After the earthquake, they realized how much Haitians needed their help.

Students raised about $1,200, which will provide more than 4,000 meals for Haitian children.
